SSD Boot time question

Hello,
I just got myself a SSD finally for my new PC so i am really a noob on how SSD's start to perform after a while.
Was really pleased about the boot times because they were really fast.
But now is my question:
Now my other HDD is getting filled up abit i notice a difference in boot times per boot (even if i don't install anything).
Even though it does not take alot longer maybe 1-2 seconds i am scared that it is broken or something so i came here to ask for advice.
The only thing i notice about it being longer is the windows loadscreen going from


till


i have nothing installed on the SSD except windows 7 home premium 64 bit.

So can someone say that this normal and nothing to worry about or is there something wrong with the SSD and the load times should be consistant?

SSD: Samsung 840 Series
HDD: WD blue 1 TB

Thanks in advance

  1. Best answer
    That is normal as windows has to check/find all the items which are on the disk and if it is onlt windows which is on the SSD, there will be programs which run at start up which will be run off the HDD which will take more time than the SSD due to slower data transfer rates

    So it's quite normal that for every boot (even though i don't install or remove anything) the windows load screen can take a little bit longer or shorter then the other time? (
  3. there is always a bit of difference in boot times regardless of what you do, so I wouldn't be too worried about it
  4. Thanks for the fast replies and help! really appreciated it!
  5. This is why I haven't used a HDD in years.

    Gotta have my 6 second boots!
  6. No worries, but if the difference in time starts to expand massively between boots, then you do have a problem (5+ seconds)
  7. i don't notice any other slowdowns then as the windows loading as i posted SS's in the opening post, and that's not 5 seconds (or i just count really slow)
