I had my Samsung 500GB SSD M2 for 4 years now and when I am copying files I can see the speed start at almost 1GB/s (lasts for 1 second) and it suddenly drops to under 1MB/s and stays like that. I also noticed slow loading in games, slow file discovery (that thing before copying/deleting files).

I also have a HDD and it behaves as usual.

What could be causing this?
