  • SSD hard drive weird results

    My SSD normally scores about 2700. recently when I run a full test, it has been scoring closer to 1500, but then when I run just the Drive, it scores ~2700 like it should.

    It never used to do that, I did just upgrade to Win 8.1 from 7, about the same time I noticed the issue. But either way, it is weird.

    Any ideas why that would be happening?

    Do you repeat the tests a few times, as it might be just be a random coincidence.
    Might be some background activity on the machine.
    Is the drive nearly full, as they tend to perform worse when near full.

      I thought that at first also, but nearly every time, if not every time I run it the entire test, the SSD scores ~1500 and nearly every time I run the individual drive test it scores ~2700, I would say more than 9 out of 10 times in both cases. I have done it enough that it is not due to something in the background.

      The fact that I can get ~2700 every time I run the individual test, I don't think the problem is my SSD, probably something the program somehow.
