Error when copying files over 2gb

Recommended Posts

I have a Kingston HyperX 1tb SSD, connected via usb adapter to a surface pro

No problem when copying small files, deleting or reading, but when copying larger files (2gb for example) it starts but rapidly speed decreases and then it just hangs.

In the past it worked no problem, or sometimes I got same problem, randomly.

Drive scan shows no errors.

Any ideas?

How old is your Kingston SSD? And how full?

If it's lost enough blocks over time so the overprovisioning has fallen below 2GB, this could happen. But it would also require TRIM to be disabled and/or the drive to be nearly full.
