Windows 10: Computer slows down considerably when large HDD is installed

    Computer slows down considerably when large HDD is installed


    Have a 3TB drive with all of my programs on it. This comes along with a 250 SDD that is used for the OS.

    Recently, I have had issues with performance of the computer getting worse, games not loading, programs hanging up.

    But I remove the 3TB drive and suddenly all performance drag is removed. Everything works great. Any suggestions for why the 3TB drive would cause such significant slowdowns, and how to remedy it?

    Thank you.

    See in your advanced options in power plan if you can disable HDD from going to Sleep Mode, that may help.
