After browsing the forums… I see that the External Western Digital Drives seem to have major issues with slow transfer speeds.
Has anyone resolved this issue or at least identified what it is??? When I first bought my drive i didnt have any issues with speed. but now it takes 5 days to transfer 30 gigs. I downloaded TeraCopy and it seemed to help slightly… BUT NOT MUCH.
Im connected VIA FireWIRE and I am just trying to get all my information off of this drive onto an second internal drive I purchsed. This is the second drive that has given me issues… IT WILL BE THE LAST WESTERN DIGITAL EXTERNAL USE. I used their dignostic software and it says the drive is functioning fine so tech support is telling me there is nothing they can do.
I have Windows 7 professional.
