I have 2 2TB WD Blacks that are incredibly slow to load my files when I open up the drive in Windows Explorer. I only have 800-900 files each on these drives. Yet when I open the drive and scroll down I can hear the drives making crazy loud seeking noises that are in sync with my scrolling. I’ve run the Western Digital Data LifeGuard Diagnostics tool on both drives and the tests both pass. Note that these drives are only 1.5 years old and both inhibiting the same issues.
What are my options?
