    Take care of my new hard disk


    Hi Ten forums Team. Merry Christmast and Happy New year. Maybe you remember me. I send you a disk report and it aparently in perfect state i perform your test and the bios test. But that disk previously hits on the ground and that "health" was aparetnly now that disk have 4 days of life. I backup my info, lost some files and no use that disk anymore, now i have a new terabite hard disk i realice 4 partitions 1 for system another for games another more for backup of games (are very heavy to download) and another to data. I see some people says Windows 10 trash hd because do many wirtes. I read in forums 100% hard disk issue. I know if i desactivate some services I can preserve more my hard disk. I know disable prefetching and another things. I know somepeople disable Windows search i have a 4 core procesor and 4 GB RAM integrated graphics Intel. Windows 10 x64 when i start my pc it stays 100% hardisk for 3 or 4 minutes. I defrag my hd and perform test. Everything ok but i like to preserve more that hd and I want some tips. Thanks you for that. I wait your answers. I want to make changes at system level not hardware level, but every tip are good for me. And thanks for your support

    None of those things actually help much if any. It's more up to disk quality than anything else.

    +1, I would only get quality HDD/SSD's and the brands of HDD's I like are Western Digital and Seagate.

    Ever since "Great flood" from few years ago HDD quality has been sketchy at best. Everybody and his brother got into HDD production, prices jumped and quality went down. When SSDs got more common and affordable HDD prices had to go down and quality suffered even more. Looking forward few more years, can't wait for prices to even up and switch to SSDs only.

    It would be nice when they do come down. All I would need is an SSD that's around 500Gb or so.

    I just did some fast math and I can get an SSD to fit my needs and ditch the HDD. All I need is about 240Gb of storage. So in March I'll get a new PC desk and an SSD.
