works now thx for that

can you verify what kind of SDD (I assume) your game is installed on?

Also if the volume that the game is installed 2 is setup in some advance way such as mirroring or spanning between 2 disks.

Why I’m asking? The settings above is the recommended settings for HDD’s so our assumption is that it shouldn’t be needed for an SSD, but perhaps it is in some cases.

This also happens on gen4 NVMe disks, (at least before the hotfix) which suggests a problem with the implementation of DS, and not related to mirroring or edge cases of low SSD performance/mirroring or extended volumes.
