Please hold off on Windows 11 March 2023 update, there are reports of SSD speed drops, blue screens, and strange error messages abroad
According to reports from foreign media Windows Latest, the Windows 11 March 2023 update (KB5023706 version), which was launched a few days ago, has many users reporting various problems in the feedback center, including reduced performance, errors when downloading updates, etc. It is worth noting Yes, this version is a mandatory update, and it will be downloaded and installed automatically, but if you have adjusted it before, it may not be installed automatically, depending on your Windows update settings.
Techspot said that some users reported that their solid-state drives (SSD) slowed down by half or more. The most popular response was the XPG SX8200 Pro 1TB SSD launched by ADATA. A Reddit user said that after installing Windows 11 March After the 2023 update, his boot time doubled directly from the original, taking up to 31 seconds to complete, which is completely abnormal for SSDs, and it returned to normal after removing KB5023706, so it must be the new version.
In the Reddit forum, some users also said that his SSD was originally 7000, but after the update, it became 3000, and sometimes even dropped to 1000:
For this reason, Microsoft has also confirmed that SSD speed reduction is one of the known issues of the KB5023706 version:
In Windows 11 22H2, copying multiple large files (GB scale) may take longer than expected to complete, especially when copying from a network share via Server Block (SMB) to Windows 11 22H2 It is easy to encounter this problem, but local file replication may also be affected. Windows devices for home or small office users should be less likely to be affected by this issue.”
Although Microsoft has added that home users should not be affected by this problem, his example is copying large files. Most users are unlikely to copy such large files frequently, but booting is another matter, so they don’t want to be affected by SSD speed. For those who are limited, it is safer to wait for the next new update.
But the good news is that there is currently a solution to this. It is not necessary to remove the updated version of KB5023706, but this is a bit more advanced, and it is not recommended for ordinary users to try. Microsoft said that before the official launch of the solution, you can try the following two built-in repair command line tools:
- robocopy \someserversomeshare c:somefolder somefile.img /J
- xcopy \someserversomeshare c:somefolder /J
As for the others, it is relatively sporadic:
- Some users failed to update with these error codes: 0x80070103, 0x8000ffff, 0x80073701, 0x8007007e, 0x800f081f
- Some crash blue screens appear, the reason is not clear
- If you are using tools like Start11 StartAllBack, ExplorerPatcher, please update them, it may not work properly
- Unreliable, slow WiFi connection
