I have a WD Scorpio Black HDD (500 GB I think) The problem I have with it is that is is S L O W. Programs take forever to respond. My laptop specs are Core i5 2520m, 4 GB DDR3 Ram, Windows 7 Home Premium. Adobe Photoshop takes forever to load.
Why is this drive so slow? When I shut down it is always telling me it is waiting for a program to shut down. It will do it for like 3 programs. (none are running, just a few programs in the lower right notification bar)
I installed a SSD drive 120 GB but I am running out of space and would like to go back to the Scorpio.
Any way I can speed this up?
