Re: Hard Drive Copying Problem
im guessing since this is a 1TB drive, its fairly new?
i would HIGHLY recommend a program called spinrite. no its not free, but this small investment could protect and give you an early warning of a drive failure spinrite also provides data recovery. it certainly sounds like something is going on, possibly your drive is extremely fragmented, but that should'nt add minutes onto your copying time.
