Copying large DV files between internal SATA drives suddenly became WAY slower than normal...? Later, had similar, but even slower, copying issues onto my flash drive via USB 2. Rebooted, no gain. This is odd. Any suggestions? I run a CLEAN mac, nothing but my main work apps and media/art files. Why would drive writing suddenly go sluggish?

Sounds like your disk is getting full? Alternately, you had lots of Applications open at the time and RAM was in short supply? Or worst of all, the disk is starting to fail?

Just in case it is the last of these, I would advise getting a full backup done quickly!

Thanks for pointing out what should have been obvious. Main drive was 90% plus JAMMED. Overlooked the amount of data I brought in over weekend. Thanks for help. Maybe I need more sleep. Or more coffee.
