    Hello,

    I noticed that copying files from one drive to another became very slow and sluggish after upgrading from Windows 11 to version 22H2.

    Before the update, the speed was always above 100MB/s, now it stops at 0 for a few seconds and never exceeds 50MB/s. It became a real nightmare.

    To confirm it was not hardware issues, I reinstalled Windows 11 (22000.1042), the problem disappeared, when I went back to upgrade to Windows 11 Version 22H2 (22621.607) the speed problem returned.

    • CPU: 12-Core AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, 4264 MHz (43.25 x 99)
    • Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix X570-E Gaming
    • Memory DDR4: 32676 MB
    • Graphic: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER (8 GB)
    • 2 Drives: Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus 1TB

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    Install Samsung SSD management tools and test it again.

    Yes, I have the latest Windows 11 22H2 updates and the bios, drivers and firmwares are updated.

    I only can fix this when I reverse the Windows 11 22H2 update.

    When I use the 22H2 the PC becomes unstable slowing transfers and games FPS.

    Thanks

    Thanks

    Yes, but not slow down to 0 and stay for some seconds, and before the upgrade the speed was above 100Mb/s and sometimes much more, now it's between 20 and 50Mb/s, and stops sometimes, this isn't normal.

    Yip, can also say - there is something WEIRD about this 22H2 "upgrade" + subsequent updates> as I have also CLEARLY NOTICED,
    a noticeable 'reduction" in read & write speeds with 2diferent setups:
    1) W-11855M Processor + 2 x <raided> PNYXLR8 CS 3140 (4TB Pci 4x4.0) installed with Win11-Entp 22H2 (64GB Ram)
    2) i9-11950H Processor + 1 x MKNSSDDVT2TB-D8 installed with Win11-Entp 22H2 (32GB Ram)
    3) intel Core(TM) i5-4210U CPU @ 1.70GHz 2.40 GHz + WD 2TB SN850X (yes I know its 4x4.0, with a motherboard of only Pci-3.0x1.4 etc....)


    ** am have not before& After read/write results -But I do "feel" its a bit slower doing the same things that I did before 22h2 update.**
    *** I have Done all the available SSD tools etc e.g. "cache purge" and "performance settings/changes etc" available ***
    **** as I am not using these setups in any production/work purposes; am @ the moment - not to concerned Its still way more than I need for general everyday usage for me ****

    Was thinking to test 11 22h2 on my incompatible AMD 2400g APU to test. This thread helped to decide not to do it. Will wait for 10 22h2 instead.

    Yes, I will avoid 22H2 upgrade for now, to much buggish.

    I just don't get it, why it is so hard for users to accept the fact that Windows platform is full of bugs. Whenever a performance issue is raised, there are users not believing it. Personally i think Windows is a sack full of crap from year 91.

    Mate ... the problem is that Microsoft is NOT anymore the genuine ol' good Microsoft we know!!! Just put it in your brain and lets move to Linux with Lutris for gaming, and use wine for Photoshop o_O

    It seems i have a simular issue as OP.

    Uploading files from my 22H2 machine (5900x+980 pro) to my NAS (Asustor 6202T; SMB share) always tops out at a constant max. speed (~110 MB/s).
    But downloading from it reduces the speed to about 60-70 MB/s max.. It also seems to fluctuate way more, it is not a nice straight speed line.
    I tested this on a pre 22H2 machine and both speeds maxed out (~110 MB/s) and are constant as expected.
    The weird thing is when i test my network speed with Iperf (my machine to NAS) it shows full network (1 Gbps) speed.

    If true, this is a very serious problem.

    How can this not be caught during testing? Did Microsoft ever test its software now? Or is all testing delegated to "insiders" with Microsoft ignoring the feedback? :furious:

    It's similar to my problem, a nightmare to use this 22H2 version. It even looks like they put a bottleneck in the file transfers.

    It could be very system specific and got missed.

    Today I will try to install drivers in beta or outside of WHQL. As NVIDIA graphics card drivers cause problems and there are already solutions in beta state, I will see if it will be related to incompatible drivers with the 22H2 upgrade.
