My computer is less than a month old. I have a SSD drive with my Windows Operating System on it, and I have two Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drives (WD2002FAEX) configured in a Raid1 to store my documents and media.
Everything worked great for the first few weeks but now I have a problem. The Raid1 has suddenly become VERY slow. It takes almost a minute to open a folder and duplicating a 100mb file can much longer than that. It is only about 25% full and is not fragmented.
-I ran windows Check disk on it and it didn’t turn up any problems.
-I downloaded Western Digital diagnostic tools but it will not work because my raid is listed as a “logical drive”.
-I looked in my BIOS and Raid Utility and everything looked ok to my inexperienced eye.
I am a novice computer user. I do not know where to go next. Please help.
