I have this HD for about 6 months and everything was fine until today.
I tried to copy a 11gb file to it, but the transfer froze, then my PC froze afterwards. Tried to transfer it again and the same thing happened. Both times i had to reset the PC.
I use windows 7 64-bits.
Since then, the HD is really slow. It takes like 15 seconds just to see the files in a video folder, transfer rates slow (40kb/s) and i’m not sure if it’s transfering. It even lags if i try to watch a video thats on it.
Apparently i can’t backup the files on it, it will take forever.
It takes a while to mount and to unmount. Can’t mount it on my TV anymore.
Can you guys help me out? Any programs i should use to bring it back to normal life without formating?
Will format help?
Thanks in advance.
