Penalties for Certain Features

Hello I saw your beginners video It was very good I just have to ask. If I was to enable encryption, data scrubbing, or smart test on my device. will there be a penalty as far as read or write privileges being slower?

Data Scrubbing will have the most impact on R/W performance but the system will usually schedule it to the middle of the night and you can adjust when it runs manually.

As for encryption, maybe a little depending on your hardware.

Not sure what you mean by SMART test as that’s just a test you run for drive health.

Thankyou! What specific parts of hard ware would decide if it would have an effect or not.
