Question Slow SSD read/write speeds and high average response time ?

For a few days I have noticed a reduced performance of my SSD, for example I have to wait 5 minutes for Steam to turn on.
I had a similar problem before and it helped to unplug then replug the SSD and after that it worked normally. This time it didn't work and I don't know what to do.

here are some screenshots:

run crystaldiskinfo and look at its health, crystaldiskmark just checks speed
could run this and check ssd - https://personal.kioxia.com/en-emea/software/ssd-utility.html

how full is the ssd?

so is drive working now or did it stop?
You might need to get a new ssd instead as if I had a drive that just stopped working, my instinct would be to replace it with one that doesn't stop.

SSDs don't normally give warning signs of failure so you may be lucky. Make sure you are backed up and I would source a new drive.

The cost of a new SSD is way cheaper than data recovery.

That is the thing, at least hdd make some noises. ssd just stop.
His ssd stopping once already would have been enough for me.
Drive not much good at 20mb/s read, thats almost hdd speed.

At least its not C drive.
I would for sure get a new drive.

Yeah I've had an SSD stop on me during a clone to try and save the thing.

So, if it's already given you a warning sign @kaclad like you describe that's more than most get. Take it, back it up, and replace it.
