External hard drive


My external hard drive has decided to go slow all of a sudden.
I've tried formatting it and it's still slow although empty.
It has a 500gb capacity. When it was working it used to take 2-3mins to transfer a 700mb file now it takes 1.5hours.
Ihave tried disconnecting it and reconnecting. When I do this my PCtells me to plug it into a USB2.0 port and gives me a display of them.But I've tried them all and I still get the same result.
I havelooked in my device manager to check I have USB2.0 ports and under theVIA SUBS it says one is enhanced. So I assume they are working asUSB2.0 ports.
I have also tried it in my sons PC which I'm sure has USB2.0 ports and still the same problem when connecting.
Copyingand pasting a 700 mb file on the external hard drive takes ages. Butnot on my PC (only takes mins). On external takes 1.5 hours.
has anyone got any ideas that will help me. Because I'm not sure whether it's the external hard drive or my USB ports.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

The first thing to do is check the hard disk for fragmentation

Ultimate Defrag is a freeware defrag program.

It will defrag the hard drive and speed things up.

Hard drive no longer recognised


for more Do not format your hard drive. We will evaluate your drive, and if the problem is only a logical recovery issue, we will recover your data for $150 per 250GB disk capacity. You would need to provide media for us to recover to, and we would send the recovered data back to you. If the problem requires physical recovery, we could get you a quote for the deeper level recovery service. Come see us at http://htcilabs.com/services/data-recovery-services/ for more information.

My external hard drive got corrupted and now i cant format the drive it gives me redundance error when i try to format. Can my drive be ruined? My drive is a 500gb capacity desktop external hard drive


Unfortunately when hard drives become corrupted it's usually terminal, try scanning your drive with your antivirus software and Malwarebytes free software from the internet, if this fails your might need to buy a new one.

the easiest option is to fragment your hard drive and try to add it on a different computer to check if it has any errors incurring on it. run disk check utility. if that does not work too, better consult the outlet you bought it from and ask for a warantee if it still has.

get back to me if that did not work and we could try to find other alternatives.

thank you

I cannot copy files FROM my Western Digital 500GB


Hi,

Check the file system of your hard drive. If your PC is recognizing it, check if its a FAT or NTFS. If it is NTFS then you have to reformat it using your Mac and choose FAT. Mac OS recognizes NTFS as a read only drive. If you plan using it with your PC and MAC you should format it using your mac and choose MS-DOS in disc Utility. You cannot format the drive using your PC Computer with a FAT file system because of the capacity. Only Mac can format it with a FAT file system.

Hard drive goes out in the middle of copying


Most of the time the problem can be solved by using a cable that is really short and of good quality.

or try another usb slot and see whether the problem repeats.

Now if the external drive is FAT (most of them come from factory as FAT formatted) and u are trying to copy files grater than 4GB, it will fail as FAT cannot recognize files larger than 4GB. SO you may try to format the external drives into NTFS, if thats the case.
