Users report that SSD read speeds have dropped dramatically after the latest Windows 11 update (Windows 11 version 22H2 – KB5023706). While the few reported events were thought to be localized to the ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 1TB SSD, the issue was found to affect other manufacturers and can be fixed after uninstalling the update or with a somewhat botched fix.
Windows slows down SSD
As reported by some media, this problem has started to occur after the Windows 11 update KB5023706. This affects the reading speed of SSDs, cutting it in half. If speed is precisely the most important characteristic of solid-state drives, by reducing this parameter, system performance drops significantly.
Microsoft has launched the aUpdate Windows 11 Moment 2. This major update focuses on the integration of Bing Chat, based on GPT-4, into the user taskbar search. However, if we take a look at the list of known issues, performance loss on SSDs is included.
“Copying large multi-gigabyte (GB) files may take longer than expected to finish on Windows 11, version 22H2. You’re most likely to experience this issue when copying files to Windows 11, version 22H2 from a network share via Server Message Block (SMB), but local file copy might also be affected. be affected by this problem.
Only affects some models
According to the first reports, the problem was related to the ADATA SSD, not with other models of SSD, although it has also now been detected in Team Group A440 Pro 2TB drives as well. Addressing Windows 11 issues with some SSDs, Microsoft states that “to mitigate this issue, you can use file copy tools that don’t use the cache (I/O buffer) manager.”
Also, they launch two command lines for fix the problem temporarilywhile creating a final solution.
The commands that “fix” the problem are:
robocopy someserversomeshare c:somefolder somefile.img /J
xcopy someserversomeshare c:somefolder /J
The final solution should be a fix to the update file or wait until the next major update to see if it is no longer listed as a problem. Either way, those affected are seeing their very limited performance and we hope it will be resolved as soon as possible.
