I have a WD My Book Live 2 Tb, it’s been working fine for at least 3-4 years. Lately, however, writing new data is working intermittently. I was wondering if someone had a similar issue.
Let me explain myself: I have the drive connected to my laptop (windows 10) via Gigabit ethernet:
- Sending data FROM the drive TO the laptop works very fast (maybe 50-60 Mb/s)
- But, sending data FROM the laptop TO the MBL works slow, ~3-4 Mb/s, and intermittently, stops a lot and sometimes doesn’t work.
- Media streaming works well
- FTP remote access has a similar behavior, fast download speed, slow and intermittent upload to drive.
Since one way is fine, I suspect it is not a networking issue, but the drive failing to write data properly. Do you think it can be damaged? has anyone have a similar problem?
