5TB Seagate Expansion Drive writing at only 5MB/s
As the title of the post suggests I have several 5TB Seagate Expansion Drives and when I plot them they will only write at about 5MB/s with occasional jumps to 100+ MB/s.
I'm pretty sure this is not a SMR drive (I could be wrong) the HDDs in question are direct connected to my laptop via USB 3.0 so no hubs or anything to bottleneck.
I also don't run any other programs while plotting and yes Disk Caching is turned on.
Anyone else have this issue or know a way to fix it? If you sit and watch TaskManager while plotting you will see the HDD spend most of its time only utilizing like 3% or 4% of my max Disk capacity. with the random 10 - 20 second spike to 100% once every few hours.
@socal It's an SMR drive.
@socal Check this post https://forums.burst-team.us/topic/3877/need-tech-help-on-plotting/14 ... creating optimized plots on SMR drives is very slow due tech limitations.

@socal , what's the Asset status? Is it mining? When will the payments start to arrive again? Make it rain, brother.
The asset status is the 95TB that Haitch is running is still mining and will payout on Saturday.
The 20TB I am running are currently being plotted at a rate of 2TB/day. So in about ~9 days I will have all 20TB I am running up and mining as well. Bringing the total to 115TB mining for the asset.
