Question about Computers & Internet
I assume that the drive is shared on the network, and it is not attached to this computer.
If the drive is attached to this computer, check the USB connection cable and test a different one. Ensure it is not connected to an USB 1 port (Old USB slower). Test the disk on a different computer.
If the disk is on the network, the latency depends on the number of users accessing the disk, on the distance, on the routers or network devices constituing the network, on the software installed on the computer, on network conflicts.
If the hard drive is connected remotely, a latency time of 10-20 seconds may be normal.
If normally there is no slowness, that may depend on a conflict on the network. Sometimes the problem can be fixed restarting servers and routers on the network.
If this latency happens only on one station, then disable any firewall or security software on the computer.
Slow access can also be caused by too many users accessing the disk at the same time.
To find out more it may be useful knowing the following:
How the computer connects to the shared resource, and how the disk is shared on the network?
Is this latency normal or it is a recent problem?
How many computers are connected to the network?
Have you full control on network administration (is this your local home or office network)?
