Hey, I recently self built a new PC which contains an AMD 8350, Radeon HD 7850, 32GB of Corsair vengeance ram with a GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3 Motherboard. I am using the Seagate 3TB HDD as well as a Sandisk ReadyCache SSD. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit.
The HDD is partitioned to be 2TB for windows, with a further 750GB partitioned and mounted to my steam install (I have a lot of games). The disk is in AHCI mode and is usally fully functional. The SSD is running as a cache currently, and does not show as a drive. The problem is every so often mutliple applications freeze simultaniously (this happens more frequently the more I do stuff). It's not really a freeze, but anything to do with file transfers stop, any downloads pause, web browser pages stop loading, file transfers stop, any attempt to open a file will not happen. So I decided to take a look at My Computer when this problem next occurred, and the HDD showed like this :
Notice how the HDD also says 400GB remaining, considering this is a brand new install on a 2TB HDD. If I refreshed this, I saw a completely different and random amount of storage remaining. About 20 seconds later, the HDD shows the correct amount of storage left, and anything continues again. My external expansion drive shows fine here too.
A long generic check on Seagate Seatools shows a pass on the HDD.
This problem is becoming a huge annoyance and I just wondered if anyone knew what this is about, and how I can go about fixing this.
Thanks in advance!
