And from Rogue Killer
Benchmark looks good.
I'm a little bit concerned with the performance of my SSD, it's only 2 weeks old. Should it be performing in the 9th percentile?
You can try Optimizing the drive and see if that gives any improvement. Open File Explorer and click on This PC then right click on C: and select Properties. Then on Tools then hit Optimize then Optimize. It may not need it since the process is supposed to run once a month or so on its own.
We can also check your hard drive to see if it is up to speed:
Actual download is at:
Download, Save, right click and Run As Admin. Run the Benchmark test and report your min, max & average transfer times. Ideally the graph would be flat or slightly tilted to the right. On a bad drive you will see sharp drops. The fewer programs running at the same time the better. Pause your anti-virus.

Could also be something using the CPU or writing to the disk that is interfering with the test.
I dont think it's the CPU as it remains quite stable. I did check the resource monitor from the task manager and appears to be constantly writing from the Registry, Windows Defender, and System. I'm currently upgrading to the most recent version of Windows 10.
Version 2004 has a problem with SSD PCs. It can't remember when it last did a trim so it does one every day which will weae out your SSD faster. Search for
click on the arrow in front of:
Task Scheduler Library
Find Defrag and click on it.
Right click on the task in the next pane to the right and Disable.
You can see what is writing to the drive:
Right click on the clock and select Task Manager
Open Resource Monitor
Make it full screen
Look in the top pane and find the process with the highest Total (B/Sec)
and check the box in front of the process.
Wait 1 minute and then
Take a screenshot and post it.
Disk does not appear to be very busy. I need to update my instructions to have you expand the middle pane before making the screenshot. That way if you click on the biggest user you get more details on what it is doing.
