Thanks for reply Brink,
The problem was when I bought the SSD, I restored from the backup on the HDD and the SSD had terrible read/write times.
I was told repeatedly, and on this forum as well. that you cannot restore an image from the HDD to SSD.
A clean install was required, even though the partition nos. on the SSD were full nos. (based on division of 4096) and the partitions are done by Win 7 disc.
When I did a clean install to the SSD, my read/ write speeds went from 150/62 to 487/340.
Sorry to be confusing.
