So i currently have two hard drives one is Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATA 3 (running on SATA 2 slot) which is actually my primary hard drive running Windows 7 Operating System on it and another is Hitachi Deskstar 320GB for backup and data recovery and so when i have my PC powers on only with one hard drive i mean only with WD Caviar Blue it runs a lot faster but when i have both hard drives running on it makes my PC performance way slower so the question is: what actually is running slow? Answer is: slow startup, slow to open aplications, slow browsing folders on “Windows Explorer” …etc so it make all running slugish. I have tested both hard drives for bad sectors but i didn’t find any so i really don’t know why my secondary hitachi hdd slowing down my wd primary hdd ! Please anyone help me something, thanks in advance and sorry for my poor english because it’s not my mother language
