Same. That, or fragmentation. Just because you don't have as much installed doesn't mean it's not fragmented to hell and back. But I'm not a fan of Samsung HDD's at all, Seagate makes excellent drives, but I tend to stick with WD, simply because they have very similar speeds, and WD just feels like it has slightly better build quality, and I've always used them without problems.
