hi,

my windows 10 64bit was running slow and I checked the C drive specs.

Drive is five years old but reported healthy. Motherboard and processor were updated and are hi-end.

Have 8mb ram and just read that Lightroom should have 12 and more if Photoshop is running - seems crazy.

Anyway I will buy more ram and have 3 empty slots.

Please comment on the drive because the attached means next to nothing to me.

Thanks,

Michael

If there are any Yellow (Caution) mentions, then that drive is in the process of failing. It may last a little longer, but you should plan on replacing it soon.
If it is Blue (Good) then the drive is in good health.

Is this a mechanical HDD, the make and model would be helpful and have you run disc clean up and defrag if it is mechanical.
