    Laptop gets very slow while copying/moving files

    My laptop used to work great in every aspect on windows 10 days ago .... 2 days ago i installed linux mint to give it a try and formatted the hard disk, but i couldn't acclimate to linux os.

    so i downloaded W10 iso and did a fresh install...but i discovered that my laptop becomes quite slow while transferring files! i can't even access settings or open browser while the transferring process!

    any help please!

    Win 10

    The drive may have formatted with the wrong sector size. I've heard of a 512 / 4K sector problem that can cause this. I suspect you need to completely ease the drive and use win 10 boot media.
