I have an 256 GB SSD who runs fast and OK.
But my 1 TB HDD 7200 rpm is really slow to access.
What can I do to solve this "problem" ?
Mant thanks and greetings

You can't compare the speed of 2 physical drives on your machine. They are
- 1 TB 7200 rpm SATA
- 256 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD
You can upgrade 1TB 7200RPM HDD to 2.5" SSD (no rotation drive) but it will still run slower than the 256GB drive because the 256GB drive uses NVMe protocols but other drive uses SATA III protocols.

Thanks BanHien for your reply.
I am well aware of the "speed-difference" between a SSD an Sata HDD.
What i am experiencing here is … if i like to access a file on the HDD, via File Explorer, that it takes a lot of time before the "file list" opens ...
It seems (I suppose) , for me, that the HDD is put in a kind of "sleep mode" … (maybe a wrong word for it) ..
Can i somewhere check this in mij laptop and how to perform this .. ??
Many thank for your help and support,
PS: The SSD = Samsung MZVLB256HAHQ-000H1
The HDD= ST1000LM049-2GH172
