Swapping Regular Disk Drive for Solid State Drive Causes Issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello:

    I just replaced a failing 1 Terabyte drive with a 1 TB Solid State Drive.  When I started a WHS backup, it ran extremely slow, like it was doing a backup for the first time.  I finally cancelled it after an hour.

    Here's my proposed steps:

    (1) Delete all the previous backups for that computer

    (2) Start a new backup with the new Solid State drive.

    Does that sound like a good plan?

    Why would WHS exhibit this behavior when the SSD drive was imaged from the hard drive and the system booted up just the same way as it did with the old drive?

  • Hi,

    Your plane is worthy to have a try. Please note that, have a copy of important data before any change.

    It is difficult to identify the exact reason, as not error/warning message. In general, as problem happens after hardware replacement, you may try to check/upgrade relate drivers, such as motherboard, SATA controller and etc. Besides, please check your SSD mode, such as IDE, ACHI. Also, you can check resource performance via Task Manager and confirm that if it is helpful.

  • Eve:

    Per your recommendation, I followed the instructions and it worked perfectly.

    I did delete all the previous backups, checked to make sure they were all gone, and then did a new backup. The backup did complete much faster, but still took about an hour since the drive I was backing up was a Terabyte drive.

    To verify it worked, I did a restore of a single file that I deleted as a test.

    Apparently, there was something different that WHS noticed when I tried to use the new Solid State drive with existing backups on the WHS.  Deleting all the previous backups worked.

    Thanks,
