I bought a My Book Essential 2TB about 2-3 weeks ago. During the last 3 weeks I slowly got around 200GB of stuff in it. From World of Warcraft backups to movies, pictures and music. Unfortunately this week the HD has been extremely slow.
I downloaded HD Tune Pro today and ran a benchmark its showing me extremely poor transfer rates.
Minimum 0.0 MB/s
Maximum 7.3 MB/s
Average 2.3 MB/s
The hard drive is close to worthless now since it takes forever to just open a folder and any file I try to open “glitches” when playing. Any way to fix it? Is there even a warranty on this things?
Any help will be appreciated.
