Harddrive Speed Problem


Active Member
Hi all, I have a htpc with 2 x Samsung Spinpoint 1Tb drives and 1 x 500gb Spinpoint drive.

I noticed that when transferring data between them (4gb files) that sometimes bin would take 2mins and sometimes 10mins???

I downloaded HDTune and raN some tests - 2 of the drives are running at around 90 MB/Sec but one of the TB drives (the one with xp on) is only running at 10MB/Sec.

Any ideas what could be the problem?
