Hi,

My buffalo external HDD is extremely slow copying music and data to my D: drive, the format of both the drives is ntfs, and my antivirus is not scanning, when I drag and drop from one to the other the copying is extremely slow.

Anyone can please help me with this? Am afraid my buffalo external HDD will crash soon and I will lose all data there.

There could be various issues with you HDD. Firstly I would try and defrag the drive. This option is available form the systems tools in your control panel. This will take some time to finish depending on the size of your HDD.

Unfortunately if this does not fix the problem, the HDD might have a bad sector, and be coming to the end of it's lifespan. I would recommend that you make a backup of all your data, in case the HDD fails completely.

Regards
