    Slow SSD Intel X25-M G2 freezes for a second or two for every new folder/file created/deleted

    aiwaxxx

      hi experts,

       

      I have been using an Intel SSD for sometime now on my HP notebook using Windows7.

       

      Off late it has been behaving frustratingly slow. Anytime I create a new folder or file, it'll freeze for a second or two, i can see a CPU spike at that moment and then the new folder gets created.

       

      I'm already on the latest SSD Firware and using the latest Intel Raid Store Driver.

      I have manually enabled DIPM in registry as well (Controller0).

       

      Any recommendation, solution, fixes? Many Thanks for reading this.

       

      Few details given below -
