I have been running Windows XP SP3 with my newly purchased hard disk since 1 month. I observed that I was getting around 20 to 30 MB/sec speeds during file transfers between 1 partition to another e.g. c: to d:
Then after 1 month suddenly i noticed that my win xp loads very slows taking about 3 to 4 min to complete loading of programs in system tray, etc. and also when i make a c: to d: file copy then it shows only 1 to 2 MB/sec speeds and takes about 3 min to copy a 200 mb file from c: to d:
So I am very nervous regarding this sudden change in speeds of hard disk ... i even checked speeds using some hard disk utility tools and they only showed up max. 3 MB/sec speeds.
Please advise what could be the problem with my Hard Disk!!
