I’ve been noticing a degradation of the performance of my wd my passport 1tb since I installed mountain lion on my new 13" macbook air
when copying files and trying to browse files in finder there is a log before the drive responds and refreshes finder or begins the transfer - this did not happen prior to mountain lion
the read/write speeds as tested by blackmagic disk speed test seem slow for usb 3.0 and are comparable to what I get if i connect my older wd mybook 1tb on usb2.0. i’m getting writes of 44.4 mb/s and reads of 32 mb/s
has anybody else experienced this?
my drive is formatted as ntfs and I’m accessing via tuxera ntfs v 2011
