i really just want to know what might be causing the issue rather than anything else, it's not a problem at the moment as the drive is only used for video's and such, so speed isnt that essential.

 

the problem is the 3rd drive i have, a Samsung F3 2TB drive, it's been this way for a long time, i think since i got it, all the drives (except the seagate) are about 2 or more years old.

 

all 3 internal drives are connected through the same Sata controller

 

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5

the Internal drives are connected to the SATA 3Gb/s connectors.

 

this is the results of benchmarking:

It could be that the drive is failing, as the access time is way off and that will result in significantly lower speeds. They're similar drives so it shouldn't be a chipset / driver issue. It's worth checking the SATA cable, as I had a drive that I thought was failing but it turned out the cable was simply loose.

have you tried running a different HDD benchmark tool to see if you get the same results??

 

something like HD Tune
