Hard drive running *very* slow?
I don't know exactly when it started, but I noticed it when I formatted my other hard drive and reinstalled windows. After Windows booted, I decided to clear the slow hard drive and install linux. Well, copying anything from it took an extended period of time. (Took literally an hour to copy 15gb). Then I used Partition Magic to resize the partition on it, and it took well over 2 hours just for that.
It's a Maxtor 40gb 7200rpm drive.
Could it be that the HD is going bad? Could it be a lack of power going to it? Or some sort of problem with settings?
