so for reference my wd blue which hold my os has a spin up time of 4891ms. Should i be worried about the hitachi drive?

Erm, maybe, maybe not xD It could be a bug maybe, I honestly don't know. Turn it off and back on again? I can't help you too much lol

If, as you mention, the "C" drive contains the OS and has a low capacity (50 GB, as you said), the easiest solution is to increase the "C" partition's capacity. Since the drive has such a large capacity, 500 GBs will be more than enough.

There are many utilities --some are freeware-- that can be used. A good one that comes to mind is 'PARAGON Partition Manager". I use version 12.

She may ask the friend who installed the 2TB drive to perform the task, that is, if he/she knows how to do it!!!

jacob are you asking a question? i am a little confused about your comment because it doesnt make much sense with this thread other than it talking about harddrives

Just gonna delete that due to its irrelevance and ad-like feeling! Also, can you test spin-up time manually?

it hasnt died yet so i have a good feeling it may be a glitch in the smart data readout

Does the drive have a firmware update? Surely that's a glitch and the drive is not performing in a way that it has such an insane spin-up time.
