WD My Passport 1 TB external hard loading very slow

I am using a little old My Passport external HDD 1 TB but it is loading very slow.
Updated my laptop to USB 3.0 with the latest drivers but unable to update WD HDD drivers.

Can anyone help me?

The old 1TB USB hard disks are not the best for primary storage

Probably not a bad idea to get a new internal disk and use a new USB disk for backup only
