Hello, I have this issue for a few month. The spinning circle on the Windows 10 Boot is laggy. I couldn't be able to solve this issue. I tried Secure Erase, clean installation of windows 10, also tried it on a different motherboard. Secure erase and formatting the drive seems to solve the issue for a few days but it happens shortly after. The SSD was converted from MBR to GPT. Please help.

I am running the latest firmware. The access time was good after the secure erase at first but it becamelike thisaccess time.PNG

How much free space does the drive have?

Which type of Sata port are you running it on?

I freed 100GB's of space but it didn't help with the boot issue just lowered the read access time to 0.99 ms. I'm running on SATA 3 6Gb/s.

Do you mind posting a full AS report of the drive?

 

On second thought after looking at the specs on the MSI X570 motherboard you should be running a PCIE 4 SSD like the 980 Pro and giving the 850 to your pets for a toy.

 

I run a gaming machine with 8 NVME PCIE 3 drives and have removed all Sata  devices as they slowed it down.  My  boot time from post to desktop is in the 4-5 second range.

 

Sata drives were good for a number of years and Sata 3 SSD's made it better but, their time has past.

PCIE 3 and now 4 NVME drives are 7 to 14 times faster than the Sata 3.
