    Question esata weird stuttering / performance issue. pleae help

    have a Raid 0 500Gb in a Thecus enclosure. Been working fine during long edit.
    now, when (eg) opening a video file, it plays back extremely slowly / video stutters like mad. copying to / from the drive is an exercise in molasses



    can see the performance graph here
    That is during playback of video.

    someone said it might be because drive is almost full (around 90-95%) and apparently sata doesn't like anything over 80% but I doubt it's the reason. Moreover, doesn't explain why same drive accesses perfectly normally when using USB2 connection

    any ideas? XP SP2, Asus P5B-E plus mobo, 2GB, E6600 etc.

    Well performance tails off massively at the edge of the disk but like you i don't think that would be the whole story.

    Might be worth posting in the Thecus help here too?.

    1) have u tried defragging
    2) XP defraging requires 80% free to work properly.

    I'd check this 1st & see waht it does 4 u.
