I’ve recently purchased a WD Elments 2Tb, using it on windows 7. I decided to backup one of my 500gig external drives thats a few years old now, it starts the transfer but then becomes stuck on calculating the time.
However transfers of the same data from the drive will work to a 32gig penstick of mine very quickly. It appears to happen for anything over a few gig, after canceling it will then display a time. I can be waiting 20 minutes to no avail for something that will transfer to the penstick in under a minute.
The drive then becomes inaccebile from windows and any attempt to do so will crash explorer. So far I have had no issues with any other equipment like this. Any transfers from the main solid state drive work fine.
EDIT: As a side note on canceling transfers no matter what the size the drive does the same from any source. This doesn’t occur with other storage devices. It actively locks explorer until the drive can be disconnected.
I’d appreciate it if anyone has any advice, or a similar issue.
