I recently got a few internal hard drives (Western Digital Green Caviar -1 TB - WD10EARX) to start a new archiving system for all my files, photos, videos, etc.
My PC laptop (Sony Vaio VGN-Z570N- running Windows Vista Professional 32-bit) is full so I am trying to copy a bunch of stuff to the hard drive, via dock (which I will backup in a duplicate harddrive), and then delete from the laptop’s internal drive.
Here’s the problem I’m having: I copied a large folder (with many sub folders, about 95GB total) of mostly photos and some short video clips, from the PC Vaio laptop. After coping, I checked the drive and though it seemed everything copied ok, some of the images are scrambled in a weird way (see attached examples - the original photos were 6MB but I downsized to email easily) I made the copy by drag-and-drop through regular windows explorer interface.
The dock is attached to the laptop via USB and it is a 3.0 connection. The USB connections on my laptop are 2.0 but its supposed to be backwards compatible
The dock is a Thermaltake ST0019U with one slot.
The new hard drive I’m using is Western Digital Green Caviar 1 TB, which was formatted on a different computer (running Windows 7 64-bit) and I did the full format, rather than “quick” version. There is only one partition on the disk.
Do you have any idea why that I did wrong or how to re-do and prevent this issue in the future?
