Need to limit my SSD/Harddrive speed to 20MB/s

Hello there!

Been searching youtube and not a single channel has any tips to help me with this. I can't use flash drives since they can't handle the many writes and reads. all i find which is annoying is how to optimized your harddrive/.ssd speed that's no where near what i'm looking for. I look for very old sata cables and they run to a 150mb/s speed which is too much vs 20MB/s speed that i need. I have ryzen 3900xt m.2 slots with 128GB ram this is not an old pc although it isn't the newest i have no need to upgrade. Reason i need this is a personal experiment but i'm willing to pay for a software that will allow me to do so. i don't care if doing this will kill my SSD/hard drive speed/life or if it's not good for my system. Thanks for reading this is my first post.

Virtual machine. It lets you run a os inside a os. Give virtual box a try

sounds good thanks sounds little complicated for 1 task that i need. 

If anyone out there knows another way maybe something i can install in my PCI-e slot that would be awesome too.

Its pretty darn simple to make a vm, easily less than a hour to setup. Much faster than easier than adding any hardware.

can't say sorry. I say VM i guess it will be ok if it does work but i was looking for hardware or a specific software for this. I'm sure there is i just have to search deeper.

Vm is that specific software. Lots of people use vms for testing software.

@Electronics Wizardy Well thanks to you i was able to find a solftware that limits iops in your hard disk with out installing anything else so thanks. This is kinda cool. You have helped me so much, All i did was search a iops software tool which is famous in the server industry to preventing from crashing among other things and to keep servers running smooth. Well i'm happy and my first post in Linus i was able to find what was looking for.
