You watching: Seagate backup plus slow transfer speed


So a few months back my fiancee acquired a 5TB USB 3.0 Seagate Back-up Plus external tough drive. At first it behaved generally, carrying data at the intended USB 3.0 speeds (50MB/sec and also up.) But now it"s started behaving actually weirdly. At initially it will certainly transport at 40MB/sec and also up however after a minute or so, the transfer rate will drop precipitously. Right currently I"m copying about 12GB of data to it, and also it"s mirroring a 30KB/sec move rate to the drive. Anyone know what can be bring about this?

Tried a different drive, very same story, though it dropped to 1.5MB instead of 30KB/sec. I"m trying to copy my Win10 profile and also data to a new system, and the difficulty shows up to be the hundreds of miniscule *.dat papers in my profile. To occupational about this, I tried to zip up my profile, but 7zip kept complaining about access denied errors also though I ran the bloody thing as admin. I"ll think I"ll start another thcheck out and also ask about migrating propapers.

Hey, D_Know_WD, many thanks for your response. I did attempt several hundred files in the 15MB - 50MB range and also they all moved at approximately 50MB/sec. Then I tried another G-Tech USB 3.0 drive I had lying about and it additionally transferred the bit files at roughly 1.5MB/sec, yet additionally handled the significant files easily. So I started Windows Back-up and tried to backup my 2TB mechanism drive to it. When I checked last night it was still grinding amethod after 3 or 4 hrs.Before I tried all this, I ran a short SMART test on the Seagate drive and also it passed. So I think the problem is all those miniscule files in my profile. I tried to work around it by zipping up my profile before moving it, however obtained accessibility denied messeras while zipping - even though I offered 7zip admin civil liberties. It appears Microsoft really does not desire civilization backing up their profiles.
