Moving data from SSD to HDD slows down?


When moving an 8Gb file from my SSD to my hard drive it started at about 200Mb/sec and gradually got slower and slower. It went all the way down to about 80Gb/sec (Still faster then HDD to HDD)

MOre info:

was from a Samsung 830 356Gb to a Seagate 2TB HDD (7200rpm)

  1. The transfer initially starts out writing to the hard drive cache (buffer), which is much faster than the actual hard drive. Once the cache is full, the speed levels out to the hard drive write limits.
  2. Ok, thank you. Long as I know its normal and not something I'm doing wrong. Thanks
