How Do I Change the Windows Disk Timeout Time?

How Do I Change the Windows Disk Timeout Time?

If a host's request for disk data has no response during disk timeout time, the operating system of the host considers no response as normal. However, if the host still receives no response after the disk timeout time expires, the host operating system reports an error or abandons this data request.

By default, the disk timeout time in Windows is 60s. The disk timeout time can be changed in some special conditions, for example, installing drivers. In this case, you need to change the disk timeout time back to 60s after drivers are installed.

The following explains how to change the disk timeout in the registry.

  1. Run the CMD command regedit to start Registry Editor.
  2. Choose HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > System > CurrentControlSet > Services > Disks.
  3. In the function pane, check whether TimeOutValue exists.

    • If no, right-click the function pane and choose New > DWORD Value. Set the name to TimeOutValue and go to step 4.
    • If yes, double-click TimeOutValue and go to step 4.

  4. In Value data, enter a desired value. You can specify the value format. Available formats are Hexadecimal and Decimal, as shown in Figure 7-2.

  5. Restart the host for the change to take effect.
