Windows 7: Recycle bin problem..??

27 Jan 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Huh....well, I noticed on my SSD (TRIM) that recycling the Recycle Bin took a bit of time. I think that's because some TRIM, at least on my Samsung SSD, only do something when you delete a file. But if you haven't noticed the delay before, that theory is kind of thrown out.

How full are your SSDs?

Windows10 Pro - 64Bit vs.10547

both SSD's are OCZ 60G versions..

as per the piccie on the previous page, SSD-one has aroung 40G used..
I don't recollect using the second SSD (ex-SSD-two) at all, and it is currently inaccessible by any means..

- oddly enough it still shows as a valid drive in Windows Explorer - though it won't scan and no details are posted by the OS..
- all very strange

- I guess I shall have to remove it for testing in another PC, prior to RMA back to OCZ..

- what started out as a sluggish Recycle Bin query has now become a possible SSD failure..

By the way..

Does this mean I've got three Recycle Bins, or what..??

Oh, duh, sorry. I forgot about that picture. I think it's like 80% or something were hard drives start getting degradation?

Yeah, I think there's one for each hard drive. But there are all linked to one icon?

Ugh, yeah...try posting this in the SSD forums over at OCZ maybe before you RMA. Someone there might know something. :/

another BTW..
just noticed this from the dxdiag read-out:

Disk & DVD/CD-ROM Drives
      Drive: C:
 Free Space: 35.5 GB
Total Space: 102.3 GB
File System: NTFS
      Model: SAMSUNG HD103UJ ATA Device
      Drive: E:
 Free Space: 821.2 GB
Total Space: 851.5 GB
File System: NTFS
      Model: SAMSUNG HD103UJ ATA Device
      Drive: F:
 Free Space: 17.0 GB
Total Space: 61.1 GB
File System: NTFS
      Model: OCZ SOLID_SSD ATA Device
      Drive: G:
      Model: OCZ SOLID_SSD ATA Device
      Drive: D:
      Model: HL-DT-ST BD-RE  GGW-H20L ATA Device
     Driver: c:\windows\system32\drivers\cdrom.sys, 6.01.7600.16385 (English), , 0 bytes

- notice how Drive G gives no info in the report..??
- there's definitely something screwy going on there..

also, I have a missing RAID driver, though how significant this is I don't know, since none of
the drives are in any way linked at the moment - is the RAID driver really necessary in this type of HD set-up..??
Recycle bin problem..??-raid_missing.jpg

PS: the aim is to return to a set-up where the OS and Office are on a RAID0 pair of SSD's (F: and G: )
- presumably, at that point the RAID driver will become essential, but is that the reason for my current problem..?

- the current partition on C: will be removed and it will revert to being a 1TB Storage drive
- but that plan is on hold at present, awaiting confirmation of this drive G: problem..

Q: with current set-up, should I disable RAID - if so, how..??

SSDs are very sensitive to voltage variations. Check your 5Volt line with e.g. Speed Fan.

well, one SSD is fully functioning OK, so I assume the 5v line is holding firm over all, but
oddly enough the Bloodrage mobo isn't on Speedfan's listings, so it doesn't show info on either of the SSD's

- any other suggestions..?

There should be a setting in your BIOS to turn RAID functionality on/off.

Tried switching ATA to AHCI in the BIOS, too?

OCZ say this re AHCI..

AHCI is not official supported on OCZ SSDs and may under some circumstances affect performance,
specifically during windows installation. Enabling AHCI can result in higher performance in synthetic
benchmarks for SSDs and HDDs alike, but can cause hang-ups and intermittent freezes in SSDs since it
allows multiple access requests to compete for a drive that is not made to address re-ordering of
commands in the queue. We recommend AHCI is set to disabled in both Windows and in the BIOS.
Native Command Queuing greatly increases the performance of standard rotational drives but it has no

bearing on SSDs.

- how exactly does one disable AHCI in Windows7..??
- Meanwhile, I'll look up that RAID switch in BIOS..

- yet more confusing info, this is how W7 reports the SSD's etc:
