I have a 2T network drive and I am using it to back up data from my Dell Inspiron running Win 7 (64bit).
It is installed without any issues and backs up data but recently I noticed my computer was doing something continually in the backrground that causes it to slow down when I use it and at times it locks up.
After lots of eliminating I finally disconnected the WD drive from my Router and the problem stopped.
I don’t know what is happening or if this is normal. It is a relatively recent condition. I don’t want to leave my computer without backup and hate to have to remember to plug the network drive in when I want to backup the PC,
I am wondering if anyone else is having this type of condition and if so, has it been resolved?
