Transfer Speeds & System Haults to Sluggish.

#1
I am wondering if it is my hdd or something else, if I transfer a big file "3gig" from partition 2 to partition 1, at the same time, open up IE or anything, My system becomes very sluggish, transfer speeds shows copying the 3 gig file from 30 mb/s & drops to 20 mb/s when I try to open something, this is another thing, 30 mb/s? that seems to be very slow. other than the pc is very quick just in middle of operations of transferring stuff becomes very sluggish.

comments?

It's because all the activity is on the same drive, I assume? The transfer speeds sound ok. I tested a 3gig iso transfer from one drive to another and was getting around 60MB/s, so 30 sounds right considering it's reading/writing to/from the same drive.

yea ok that makes sense, both partitions are on same hard drive.

Thanks Bud.

Go to a command prompt in the windows\system32 folder and Type and enter:

"winsat disk -seq -read -drive c"

(and you will get a report on your hard drive read speed.) I get 87.49 mb/s while uploading files. (6.2)
on 7,200 rpm SATA 750 gb hard drive.

Repace -read with -write and get a report on your hard drive write speed. I get 62.66 mb/s (5.8)

Also test your memory "Winsat mem" I got 15427.87 MB/s with 3 GB DDR3.
