    Suddenly, the Photos app in my desktop can't get the full resolution pic for my OneDrive images.

    I get the mostly blurry preview version which should show the dots and in a few seconds get the full quality image. But it doesn't. The dots are all blinky, I mean, I can barely see them, they aren't solid. Also I got an error text while trying to see a video.

    I noticed this yesterday, after I installed my new SSD drive. Could this be the cause of the problem?

    It's a Samsung Evo 850, and I used the provided Magician software to set the "OS Optimization" setting to "Maximum Performance". What this does is to change various Windows system options to the optimal settings for use with an SSD.

    This works ok in my Surface 2, so it's a software thing in my desktop.

    Anyone had this kind of problem?

    Edit: Apparently the problem was fixed by selecting the "OS Optimization" setting called "Maximum Reliability". IIRC one thing it does is enabling virtual memory. It fixed the performance of the Photos app.
