What kind of disk is it, what file system do you use, how full is it?

If it's BTRFS:

I experienced, that e.g. BTRFS can get very slow on full disks (esp. for
writes). Also, for non-SSD disks, not having the "autodefrag" mount
option can result in a fragmented file system over the time.
Also, some kernel versions have known glitches since the file system
driver is still a moving target.
