The other day I had a customer come to me with a computer that was running slow. So I did a quick virus scan and found no issues, and to my surprise, the computer had a new solid state hard(SSD) drive, so there was no reason that the computer should have been slow. After a few minutes I noticed that the computer, while having a SSD, it was only 128 gigs and was almost 95% full. Light bulb moment!!
The system was running slow because it had not storage to move files around. Think of it this way. Before you sit down to your thanksgiving meal, you may play catch, football or something else, and you have energy. After you stuff yourself with turkey, dressing and all of the fixings, you are slow, you may even have to loosen the belt and do your best Al Bundy, while sitting on the couch, watching another terrible Lions loss. Point is you don't move well because you are full.
Same thing happens with your computer, when the drive is full, it can't shift files around, and thus, runs slow. Just finished installing a 1 TB SSD on the computer and the clients computer will be moving just like Barry Sanders in the open field.
