Question about the performance %

Postby Max Pen » 2020.10.17. 12:31

Hello there,

My C windows drive shows 100% health but is slowly but surely dropping in the performance bar...

I am now at 94%, at 29th of september I was at 96%. At this rate I should be worried right? I was wondering at what point should I consider replacing the drive? EG 50% preformance? Considering it is my main drive for the windows operating system... I don't want to wake up one day to a unbootable system.

Doing a surface test right now to determine damaged blocks...


The drive has been in use for 1268 days.

Re: Question about the performance %

Postby hdsentinel » 2020.10.19. 08:27

Hello,

You do not need to replace the hard disk because of this issue.

The Performance value and graph suggest if the hard disk drive is working at slower performance than should. Usually this is not a problem with the hard disk drive itself, but something else (cables, connections) can cause that the actual transfer speed is limited and the disk drive may work slower than expected.

If the health shows 100%, then it means the hard disk is perfect - but records problems, for example communication errors, as you can see on the Log page. The text description on the Overview page likely suggests a link which clearly describes the situation and gives information about possible causes what to check first (cables, connections) - and what can be done to improve the situation: how to avoid similar and how to clear errors in Hard Disk Sentinel to prevent displaying these problems and focus only possible new issues.

If you'd replace the hard disk (but use the same cables, connections, etc.) then you will likely experience similar with the replacement drive too.
