Hi,i have problem with 4 years(9th August will be 5 years) old Hitachi hds721025CLA382 HHD it is 250 GB,i made it into 2 partition C(78) and E(155),But for some reason my E partition is really slow when i test the benchmark it have 0.0 mb/s read(hasn't finished because error) i actually never use the E one but recently i download some games+ video and move it there.This is the screenshoot(until 78 it still have good speed but the rest mostly filled with 0.0mb/s):

  1. Hi Nico Santosa
    It may be time to invest in a new hdd
    try running crystaldiskinfo and tell me the results

  2. Run Checkdisk /f (fix) and see if it helps

    Check it with Seatools (or the Hitachi equivalent)

    30 hrs! Then I think your drive is faulty and should be replaced.
  6. yup , definately time to replace the HDD , i would suggest though before it dies to backup any important data stored on it while you can
  7. If you want fast you should get an ssd for the os, programs and games. Anything else should go on a hdd "storage" drive
  8. Thank you all for your helps,i will save some many and buy new hard disk also eksternal hardisk for my backup data(or maybe SSD for my OS).
