  12. Question Copy Video From SSD Crawls To A Halt

    So I am trying to copy some video clips from an SSD to a RAID5 array on Win 10 about 15Gb. The copying starts out well at about 350Mb/sec then after about 30sec the speed drops to a puny 1.5 Mb/s or 2 at most. Can this be an SSD or a RAID5 array issue? How can I test this? Thanks! Gabster
