I have the same problem. I have a 3.0 score for my Hard drive which in Vista had a nice 5.6

It's a 2005 Maxtor 200GB 7200RPM with 8MB of cache (Maxtor 6B200M0)

Try disabling 'write-cache buffer flushing' on drive/s, mine went from 3.0 to 6.0

You don't need RAID, set settings per drive

Mine's still not good a score.
processor 7.1
memory 7.1
areo graphics 5.1
gaming graphics 5.6
hard disk 5.9

500GB Seagate 3.5 Barracuda HDD ... I actually have 2 of these, but I kept having trouble with Raid continually needing to repair itself, so I disconnected the second HDD and reconfigured setup.

My SSD scored a 6.3 and I didn't change anything.

Previous 320GB 7200RPM HDD scored a 2.9.

Thanks. I did it again and the score didn't improve at all.

Just disable them both. I did that and my score is now almost twice.
