Moving data from SSD to HDD slows down? Tags: SSD Hard Drives Storage Last response: September 4, 2012 12:52 PM in Storage Share Chariot Of Mars September 1, 2012 10:56:29 AM Hi, 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) More about : moving data ssd hdd slows | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove tivatar September 1, 2012 11:05:38 AM 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. | Report abuse Chariot Of Mars September 4, 2012 12:52:28 PM Ok, thank you.
