Windows 11: Update seems to slow down some SSDs
Never change a running system – many Windows users still seem to follow this principle today. No wonder, after all, one reads again and again about incidents in which a Windows update causes gigantic problems for some users.

On Reddit, several users have had their say after the update, that the speed of their PCIe SSD has been greatly reduced. An affected person reports that the reading speed of his SSD was throttled from around 7,000 MB/s to around 3,000 MB/s. For others, the write speed in particular seems to suffer from the update.

The current Windows update is also causing problems for you? We’ll tell you how to switch back to the previous version:
What users of Windows 11 should not forget: These are isolated cases. The update works fine for most people. However, if you want to be on the safe side, you should wait a few more weeks with the update until Microsoft provides a fix for the corresponding problems.
