I have a WD My Book 4 TB USB 3.0 HD
I recently bought the EX2, and I’m trying to transfer files from the My Book to the EX2. Right now I have the My Book connected via USB port 1 on the EX2, both plugged in. I selected all folders on the My Book, selected copy, pasting into a folder on the EX2.
It’s been going for nearly an hour, transfer rate reads at 4.03 MB/sec. The My Book is nearly full. If I’m calculating correctly, this is going to take something like 10 (!) days? I’m pretty sure either or both of the devices will overheat and crash before then.
What is going on with this very slow transfer rate? How can I improve it?
I had the My Book connected to my PC previously, transfer rates from the PC HD to the My Book were never ever this slow.
Any advice appreciated! I think I’m going to have to cancel this copy for now until I figure out what’s going on.
