Yesterday I bought new and fresh HDD already named on "thread", but I have noticed some low transfer speed when doing copy/paste of files.
For an example, I wanted to copy/paste 5GB folder full of pictures, it started with transfer speed of 18MB/s then it slowly went down to 14,10,8 etc.. lowest transfer speed i was getting was 7,15MB/s.Just to mention that extracting of this folder from WinRar took me like 10-12 minutes to be done.
Right now, while I'm writing you this thread, HDD is making sounds/noise, like he's doing some operations, but still there is nothing started except my browser.They are not that loud but since I'm not a techie guy that much I would like to know is it normal for HDD to make that in normal circumstances.
Please, if something is wrong with my HDD any help would be of use.
Thank you in advance.
e: Is there any difference if you try to copy/paste folder with for an example 190.000 items and folder with 1 file, but still with the same size (5GB). Is speed going to be reduced if there are many files to be moved???
