Hi

Im getting really slow transfer speeds to external usb hard disk.
Transfering a big file it starts off quite quick and gets up to 5% or so quite quickly.
Then it starts to slow down until it settles at around 5MB/s

Im at a loss i was expecting around 40MB/s maybe on USB 2 ?

My specs are (taken from CPUID)
Gigabyte GA-MA780G-UD3H motherboard
8GB DD2 4-4-4-12 @401Mhz
AMD Phenom II x4 940 @ 3013Mhz

Im at a loss. Is it a driver issue? When connected it shows under "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" as "USB Mass Storage Device"

any ideas please?

A:Slow transfer speed to external USB Hard disk?

For normal external USB 2 HDD I might expect ~30MB/s for a sequential file transfer.
What type of USB HDD are you using?

You could download CrystalDiskMark and post the performance figures.
Download Center - Crystal Dew World

Running the test on another HDD as well would be useful if you can get your hands on one. Might indicate a drive specific issue.

A:data transfer speed???

Hi technaught,

What governs data transfer speed on any connection is the congestion on the Internet. Think of the Internet as a big fat pipe with massive flow rate pushing electrons carrying your data. Depending on the type of Intenet connections of your dialup line connected to your ISP to the Internet, and the type of files you download, performace varies with the congestion which varies with the time-of-day.

Search the Internet for the small freeware: ConnectionGuard.

Its user interface is crappy, but it will give you a reliable indication of how your download speed is varying as it happens.

The USB interface transfer rate is dependent on the interface (USB 2.0, 3.0), the USB devicen such as flash drives, and the actual size of the data being transferred. Lot's of small files will have low transfer rate, while the large files should transfer close to the max transfer rate of the interface, if the device supports it.

You could try updating the USB driver and/or change the USB device, such as flash drive.

i just inserted some back up internal hard drive (that i keep outside my computer when im not using) in my desktop.

usually my internal Data transfer speeds is pretty much around 70 megs/sec ...meaning it takes me not much more than half an hour to transfer 30gigs from internal drive A to internal drive B.

but sometimes..(usually when i use some drive i havent used in a long time) the speed of transfer is abysmally slow...like 2 megs/sec. you never know when the speed will adjust but sometimes it takes a while.

right now, it'll take me 3 hours to transfer 30 gigs. goddamn.

Greetings,
 
I have an Asus laptop running windows 7 64 bit and this laptop came with 2 hard drives, each partitioned into two parts (C:\ & D:\ and E:\ & F:\).
 
I am transferring over 30GB of data from one drive (C:\) to the other (F:\)
 
Get this... the transfer rate is 1.2MB/s right now. Over 9 hours left to copy the 30GB. There are over 125,000 items but that still does not justify the 1.2MB/s
 
I am open to any suggestions but first, a few points.
Yes, I am sure they are two separate drives with those partitions.
Error checking showed zero errors on both drives.
This is the 3rd time I am trying a transfer.
Both drives are relatively empty (especially the F:\).
C:\ is my system disk.
The SMART data shows no read/write errors or overheating.
I have disabled the virus protection and all real-time scanning.
 
Again, I am very open to suggestions and checks. Feel free to post your idea!
 
 
Thanks in advance!

A:Laptop Hard Disk to Hard Disk transfer Extremely Slow

My experience with file transfers of the type you describe...is that the number of files doesn't matter...what matters is how large the files are.  Video files take much longer than text or document files.
 
Slow transfer rates between partitions/drives...can indicate a problem with either the partititon or the drive, IMO.

Who would want their external drives to slow down? Me, that's
who!

Besides apps like BurstCopy that attempt to maximize data
transfer speed, are there any apps that can set the speed,
usually in Mbps, to any number you want?

XP and eSATA drives are like oil and water. They don't mix!
You can tweak the hell out of the system, it doesn't matter.
XP was developed before these super fast drives. Vista fixed
the problem by using dynamic virtual memory management.

If you want to read about how XP uses static paged pool and
paged table entries (PTEs) just Google the topic. Compare
XP to Vista in this area and you'll begin to understand the
problem.

Please, no more tweaks or registry hacks. If there is an
app that allows you to set the data transfer speed, direct
me to the link or site.

Thanks guys.

Hi,

My system has two Western Digital WD10EARS 1TB drives specced at 3GB/s. When I was transferring some files between these drives I noticed the speed reported was only between 27MB/s and 70MB/s. I haven't really looked at transfer speed until now and then only because I was copying a lot of files and it seemed to be taking longer than expected.

Does anyone know if this transfer rate is typical or, if not, how I might find out what the bottleneck is?

Hi All:
Before I gave up on this latest project, I thought I should see if there were any words of wisdom from the Forum.

The issue is VERY slow hard drive transfer speed.

The problem PC is about a 3 year old Elite P6SET-ML mother board c/w 433 MHz Socket 370 Celeron with a Maxtor 8.7 GB Ultra 66 disk drive. RAM = 196MB. WIN98SE is installed and fully updated.

The problem is this PC has ALWAYS had very low disk transfer speed. It is so slow it is ridiculous. Any activity like boot up, IE Explorer or the loading a program like MS Word is very slow and is obvious from the drive activity. Sys Soft Sandra gives a measurement of 4082. This is about half the speed it should be.

I have:

Updated the Bios to the latest version
Replaced the IDE drivers with the latest version from Elite.
Replaced the existing 40 wire IDE ribbon cable with a 80 wire version.
Replaced the hard drive with a new 40GB Maxtor.

I did get slight transfer speed increases by replacing the IDE driver and the newer drive but it is still painfully slow. A mixmaster would describe the activity nicely!

I realize that a fix would be to install a Promise Ultra card or probably more sensible, upgrade the MB/CPU. However, I just could not accept that any MB/drive combo could be this slow unless there was a specific fault. Other MB/drives I have worked or built of the same CPU speed and vintage are substantially faster than this particular unit.

Any ideas before I throw in the towel?

I know of one way it can be done. You could buy a tv capture card like wintv for your computer. They are pci cards that usually cost around $50 - $80. You'll need a big hard

In your system specs it says you have a Western Digital Caviar Green it is probably only a 5400 RPM drive to increase that score you may have to go to a 7200 RPM drive then I'm not sure how much you will really gain but if you would put in a SSD that score would increase for sure.

It was suggested that i update all my drivers which i have done using driver boost, but the problem remains. Writing new data like downloading a movie from I-tunes to one of the external drives works perfectly fine with no delay. it is just moving data around between the external drives that is the problem.

Hello everyone,

This is an issue mainly with my hard-drive and not Windows 8. I attached an image to help resolve this problem. Whenever the 'Data transfer rate' reaches 100% I get huge performance issues. This happens whenever I deal with a few running programs that are accessing and writing data.

The speed transfer of this HD is about 3Gbits I think and is interfaced with SATA. Does this mean I have to buy a new HD with larger transfer rate or am I missing something?

I used to run Windows 7 but switched to 8 and with the new task manager I 'managed' to notice the performance with my HD.

Do you have the latest drivers for your chipset? Is hard disk DMA enabled?
Windows falls back to PIO mode when DMA is not available (disabled) or too many errors occur (bad cable, bad controller, bad drive).
Uninstall IDE ATA controller from device manager, reboot , then install the newest IDE controller from the motherboard manufacturer.
I believe Seagate has good customer service so they can be also be contacted, if required.

Hey all,

Right now one of my hard drives is almost full. It's a 186 gig and I've got like 2 gigs left to use on it, lol. But then I also have a totally unused 298 gig HDD (it's already installed though). What I want to do is transfer some of my stuff, well... MOST of my stuff.... from the 186 gig to my 298 gig. But I want to do it the right way so I don't corrupt any files or anything.

Basically the biggest things are all of my games, my music (I have like 20 gigs of mp3s lol), and some other media.

The only way I can think of to move the stuff from one HDD to the other is to just sit there and drag all the stuff, folder by folder, file by file, to my 298 gig, but that just seems a little too easy. Is that not the right way to do it?

I figured there would be some kind of formal Windows XP method to do it but I wasn't sure.

Any help with this would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, folks!

You'll need to hook that drive up to something in order to transfer the data. Go to Start > Progarms > Accessories and try the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard in XP.

There are cases that you can buy that will allow you to run a hard drive externally through the USB port. Some come with drives but you can buy them empty. If you got one of those, you'd also be able to use it for saving an image of your new hard drive in case it crashed.

Not having the Win 7 disks is no problem as long as you have the Product Key, the 25 character code that is on a small sticker somewhere on your PC. You can download the ISO from here Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River ? My Digital Life and burn onto a DVD (not more than 4X) and use this for a clean install on your SSD. When you are happy with the install, you can insert your Product Key and active your Win 7. Use this tutorial to aid on your installation.

If you can put some programs on your SSD, you will see a big advantage in speed. This is the desired way to install SSD's.

I am having an issue with my USB 3.0 Ports. I am trying to back up a lot of my files onto a Kesu External Hard Drive, but I am getting abysmally low transfer speeds. They start at around 10-15 mb/sec, then drop to as little as 500 kb/sec over the course of an hour. I have already changed the Kesu's settings to prioritize better performance, and it's been recently formatted as a NTFS drive, and has nothing on it. I am using an HP Elitebook 8460p with Windows 7 64 bit. Please help, as I bought this hard drive specifically to back up my files or transfer them to a new computer, and I can't transfer anything with these low speeds.

Thank you!
Eben

I went to Fry's to have my computer (HP Windows XP) looked at because it wouldn't turn on. I was told that my mother board was fried. So, I bought a new computer (HP pavillion with vista) and a hard drive enclosure and the guys at Fry's put my hard drive in it and told me that I would just need to hook it up, turn it on and drag and drop my files. I've tried that but it's not working. Could someone please take pitty on me and tell me how to do this. I've got very simple computer skills. I appreciate any and all advice!! Thanks in advance. Jen

A:How do I transfer data from hard drive to new computer?

Hi, Jen, and welcome to the forums.

First off, some info:
What was your old OS? What OS are you running now? What have you tried to do, and what happened when you tried that? Have you gotten any error messages?

I am nnot sure if this is the right board, but here goes. I have a compaq 6270s. It was only a cheap backup for some files and office work. However recently the laptop took a bit of a bump and I am almost certain the hard drive has failed. Now I have another cheap replacement coming. The harddrive of the laptop can be easily removed. I wanted to know if it would be possible to transfer the data or at least some of it to my new computer and if so if there is a cheap piece of equipment that I can just plug the harddrive into and then connect it via USB to the laptop and just transfer like you would with any USB stick? Because the Compaq laptop won't boot up, there is nothing I can do from that angle however a quick search of Amazon showed all these results... https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2/255-9957494-1401233?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keyword... the first few seem as simple as plugging the harddrive in and connecting it via USB. Obviously the harddrive is not working to the point of booting up the laptop but might it still have the individual files I want? And secondly is the harddrive to USB as simple as I described. Thanks for your help.

A:Hard Drive Upgrade - How to transfer old data to new hdd

Get yourself some software to do it would be my answer, I dont know if you would have to reinstall vista.
Acronis seem a good supplier.

This should copy the compleate HD.
Or
Install the new HD with a fresh install of Vista and directly copy the contents of the second drive(Just the data you want to keep) to the new one.

Look here for more info Partition Copying Utilities (Drive Copy, etc.)

My computer decided to die on me, so now I want to transfer my data from the hard drive in the dead computer to my new one. I am not sure how to do this. I have heard of using an external hard drive or some way where you make it the slave I'm not really sure.
I have an IDE, 80gb, 5400 rpm, 3.5 in hard drive.
All help will be appreciated!
 

A:How can I transfer data from old hard drive to new computer?

Put the drive in the second bay jumpered as a slave or on the second SATA cable.

Then drag and drop or use recovery software.

Or buy a good Powered (Addonics, for example) USB external drive Enclosure. Put the old drive in there, and plug it into a USB port where you can see everything... then drag and drop all the data... etc.

You can take as long as you need to get it right.

You might want to read up on where Outlook Express, Outlook, Firefox and so on keep their files... Quicken, Quickbooks, etc. But it is relatively trouble free.

You want the enclosure that has its own power adapter that plugs into the wall, as it really taxes your system to run this external drive off the USB power.

Be sure to shop for the correct enclosure. They have them for both SATA and EIDE and are not usually interchangeable.

If I am saving a backup to internal hard disk vs USB 3.0/2.0 USB external hard disk

1. Backing up to an internal 3.5 hard disk vs backing up to an external 2.5 hard disk using USB 3.0, roughly how much extra time would the external backup need to complete the backup process?

2. Backing up to an internal 3.5 hard disk vs backing up to an external 2.5 hard disk using USB 2.0, roughly how much extra time would the external backup need to complete the backup process?

Thanks

A:Speed of saving to internal hard disk vs USB 3.0/2.0 external disk?

There's no definitive answer, it would all depend on which internal drives you had (SSD/HDD, SATA 6GB, SATA 3GB) and which external drives you had and their relative transfer speeds. It's all just guesswork without that info.

Hi Everyone.

I have recently had to format my hard drive and re-install windows. I have also had to replace the motherboard, CPU and power supply. I borrowed a 1.5 TB Freecom firewire external hard drive from a friend to back-up important data before the format, but the transfer speed is uselessly slow now that I am attempting to put the data back on the drive.

I have tried:

- updating the drivers for the firewire card
- switching to 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller (legacy) in the device manager
- Optimizing the drive for 'better performance' as opposed to 'speedy removal' in the drive's properties.

As things stand at the moment, I am getting about 400 kb/ps transfer speed from the external to my on-board drive. As you can imagine, this is virtually useless to me, considering I have hundreds of gigabytes worth of data to transfer.

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

A:Extremely slow transfer speed from external hard drive

The best option if the external HD offers an eSata port would be to plug the drive in by either an eSata port provided with the case you or by an addon eSata card. Even when backing things up on a drive in a usb enclosure like seeing a full system image made the data transfer rate slows to a crawl.

One example for that was an image made from a 7 laptop to the drive in the external enclosure taking some 3hrs. to finish from a 120gb drive with hardly anything on it and comparing that to an image totally 497gb made to another internal drive on the desktop here only taking about 35min.!

Unfortunately the only other option would be removing the drive from the self contained external casing it came in to install internally like I did with one WD Essentials 500gb model during the beta and RC testing of 7 simply to add in an extra drive. Otherwise you have to suffer with what the firewire bus will allow.

Of course if it did have an eSata port you could also open the side cover on the case while powered down long enough to plug the drive into a port on the board long enough to see everything copied over which would be faster but just a little awkward. Then you would be using the onboard sata controllers.

I have been using a USB 2.0 Seagate 250GB external hard drive for a number of years and it's been working fine.

My laptop has USB 3.0 ports.

The last couple of weeks it's got really slow (less than a MBs) when transferring a video file.

I checked the hard drive for errors - none were found.
USB drivers are up to date Driver Booster 3 says.
Is there some settings I could try to speed things up?

As far as I know I've not changed anything so I don't know why it's suddenly got so slow.

A:Extremely slow transfer speed to external hard drive

If you right click the drive in Device Manager and look through the Properties you may see an option to either treat the drive as removable or permanent. Removable supposedly you can unplug without ejecting. But it is slow. Permanent supposedly enables write caching. Likely it was set to permanent before.

If nothing seems apropos you can try the old trick of deleting the drivers and rebooting. Plug and play will install the same drivers that were there but will do it "right" somehow. I have seen a lot of problems disappear just by doing this on a particular device. That is why support does it. Anecdotal success rate seems to me around 50%.

Hello,
I lost my hard drive! I am looking for information on how to transfer data from a damaged hard drive to the new hard drive? Can I take the disk out of the damaged hard drive & place it into another hard drive or device to retrieve the infomation? If so do you know the steps or who to refer me to? I would appreciate any information you can give me. I know there is a way I just don't know how!!!! Help me please

Thank you
 

A:Need info on how to transfer data from damged hard drive to new one!

It really depends on how damaged the drive is. If the platters do not spin because of a motor failure there isn't much you can do yourself. You cannot take the platters out and put them in another drive since it is a pretty delicate operation and has to be done in a clean room to keep from contaminating the platters with dust, etc.

If the drive is marginal you might be able to place it in your PC as a slave and just transfer the data to the new drive.

If it is beyond your capability you can send it out to a data recovery company where they will recover the data from the defective drive for a fee. That fee however is usually more than the average PC user can afford.

Hello,

I have 2 dead PCs that I have not gotten into for at least 2 years. I have been using an iMac, and I am getting ready to throw out the PCs. I decided to fire them up to get the data off of them that I wanted so that I could put them on my Apple, but the motherboards are dead.

I took the hard drives out, and need something to plug into the 2 drives that I can transfer Pictures, Videos, Music, Documents, etc. off. So that I can upload them onto my Mac. Is there a device that allows me to transfer straight from the drives to the Mac, or do I need to use a PC to transfer them to a USB Thumbdrive first, then upload to my Mac. Either way is fine, but I'm not sure what to look for.

One drive is a SATA, and the other is (UDMA/IDE)?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
