Because the NVMe drive throttles pretty quickly I am forced to use the secondary WD drive for downloads. That way at least I can keep using the system w/o slowdowns.
I have attached CDM ss for all 3 drives. The Toshiba external appears to be much faster than the WD.
In my old C2D laptop I had the same WD drive and it exhibited the same issue as well, only worse as it was the system drive as well.
I will try in a Linux distro to see if it makes any difference.
Thanks for taking the time to reply.
