Windows 7: Weird freezing problem?

The Sequential reads and writes are pretty good for a mechanical hard drive but the randoms are pretty bad, here's an example with my hard drive, wouldn't hurt to do a defrag.

I've done one, a problem I was having with my primary was the freezing whenever it was reading or writing something, which also showed up in other programs' benchmarking, which is why I bought the secondary for recording.

I think it might be time for an SSD upgrade, scan.co.uk are selling them for 50(128GB) which is surprisingly cheap considering.

Are you sure that's the problem? I just need to be completely sure because I don't exactly have the money to start buying stuff out of trial-and-error, also considering I don't have 50 yet in the first place.

So I performed another test on my primary drive while the freezing problem was happening and the speeds were significantly lower while the secondary speeds were still the same. Like, write was <100 with read hardly getting past 20. It looks like it might be the problem. I'll try installing Windows on my secondary and taking out the primary.

You could try and see if your other hard drive suffers with the same problem, but I feel it maybe your hard drive failing.

Edit: Seems you've come to the same conclusion

If that is the problem I'm not sure why it would cause the secondary drive to seemingly shut down on occasion. In My Computer it still shows it but if I open it it freezes for a few seconds while I can hear it starting up. Hm.

What about power options within windows?, have you set everything to high performance?

Yeah, it was high performance, I turned it back down to Balanced and restarted and the problem still occurred.

Is there a good way to transfer all my files from one hard drive to the other?
