Secondly, can you run HDTach (http://www.simplisoftware.com/Public/index.php) and post a screen shot of the results, or just tell us. Which model of WD disk it it exactly? m 0 l theunkown November 17, 2010 7:09:42 AM er this is kinda stupid but i measured it when i was transfering large files from partition to partition m 0 l Related resources HHD Problem: Slow transfer rate and clicks once in a while - Forum Is my data transfer rate slow? - Forum Hard Disk File Transfer Rate Slow - Forum USB transfer rate too slow! - Forum slow usb 3.0 transfer rate on dell inspiron 3521 - Forum Can't find your answer ?

There is so much physical movement of the heads involved in a partition to partition transfer that it radically skews the transfer rate downward. m 0 l Plumble a b G Storage November 17, 2010 12:30:43 PM ^ this is why. Double check with HDTach though just to be sure. It should be fine. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
