ASRock AB350M hard drive - latest drivers, latest BIOS
So, when I bought this bad boy, back in October 2018, it was scoring an avg transfer of 1121MB/sec per HDTune.
I thought things were a little odd, so I checked over the weekend - and now it’s at 256.3MB/sec.
This is slower than a SATA SSD.
Temp (per SSD dashboard) is at 57C.
Life remaining is 99%.
SMART says it’s… Oh. ■■■■. I was gonna say, “happy as a little clam,” because that’s what I recalled - but in the SSD it’s saying the SMART self-test isn’t supported.
So - what on earth happened?
How do I track this down?
It’s made the investment in this drive basically worthless…
