Hello everyone,

 

I've been having this for a quite a while now,my pc starts running extremely slow progressively after about a couple of months of use,to the point that it takes more than 30 minutes to boot on SSD,if booting at all and even if it does manage to boot,it still runs extremely slow.

 

This happens after Windows updates but not immediately after the update installation itself so I am not sure the update is the source of the problem.I just formatted the drive every time and that would reset the situation but the problem still came back after about 2 months(twice now).Haven't been able to find anything relevant online.

 

The SSD model is SSD MUSHKIN MKNSSDCR120GB-7 CHRONOS 120GB and I am using Win10 professional 64bit.Thank you in advance for your help!

How much free disk space is there and is there only one active partition? Perhaps there is some recovery or restore files or something similar, and your disk is too full.
What happens, if You run Trim function?
Is the automatical Trim function enabled?

Hey Zainmax,thanks for the response.

 

Don't have any partitions since this is the only disk I own currently unfortunately.I always take care leaving about 30-40 gigs free no matter what.

 

I checked your links and it seems that Trim was enabled by default on my fresh Installation so i assume it was enabled before as well.It was currently set to retrim on weekly basis.
