WD My Passport Essential 1TB slow transfer speeds
Hello, i have been having problems getting my portable hard drive to transfer as it did when i got it. i am running windows 7 i7 2600 3.40GHz with 2 USB 3.0 slots in the back. I have previously copied a folder a little over 6 GB's to the drive from my computer and it took about a minute to a minute and a half now i am looking at a transfer rate of about 32 mbps. it takes about 10 minutes to transfer a file of 300 mb's which before, would have transfered instantaneously. I plugged it in the other night and windows 7 asked me if i wanted to fix the drive so i clicked both options and let it do its thing for about 24 hours (4 P.M. today) and i'm still not getting the same transfer rates as before. i have used check drive and says the drive is working properly. i have not changed any settings in the computer at all. also my mobo is an asrock z68 extreme gen3. any ideas on why i am not getting the same transfer rates as before?
