New hdd, one week old.
I have problem with file transfering. Sometimes it goes ok ( 100 MB/s transfer) from my local hdd to external hdd,
and sometimes it goes around 60 MB/s, but most of the time hdd freezes itself and I must restart my computer ( light in hdd blinks while transfer is active, but at some moment it begins to constantly light and thats the moment when transfer stops )
I bought 3.0 USB PCI-E card and I put it in PCI-E orange slot, cuz my PCI-E x1 slot is occupied with TV card.
I was told that this will work, and it works. I think that problem is in external hdd.
I am running HD Sentinel test almost 12 hours and its not finished yet. Sholud I continue or what ?
There are bad sectors ond hdd , and I google it how to fix them,
but I dont know should I repair bad sectors
or return hdd to the store since I have guarantee.
Any ideas ?
