HI, i have a wd 500 blue, transfer is now about 1 MB/s. i try it in external case and connect to mb directly, same thing - slow transfer.
there is no bad sector and new fs didnt help, 2 zero passes during format didnt help, new particion didnt help. S.M.A.R.T. didnt report anything and disk have sound like it should be.
my bad is that my local dealer warranty is expired 6 month before disk is starting to act like that so i cant replace it with another one. (2 year warranty)
i was lucky with data - disk didnt lose anything, i copy it to another drive, but it took about 40 hours for copy .
does any one have idea what it could be !?
is there any additional software to test a disk?
could that disk be flushed with newer software (can any disk be flushed) :??:
what is my options whit that disk?
