Re: OS almost freezes while copying files to USB harddrive

I did some more testings. Conclusions:

- USB harddrive is irrelevant to the issue

I could reproduce the problem with a single internal drive:
1.) prepare a map (C:\a) with the 4 test files (2x2GB and 2x15MB)
2.) create destination map : mkdir C:\b
3.) copy : cd /d c:\a & copy . ..\b

I think the smaller files are not important either.

- it is more hardware related than software

I installed Windows 2008 x64 in AHCI mode. Win2008 comes with an ahci
driver made by Microsoft.
The problem was present there too.
Running Windows 2008 in IDE mode did not show the problem.

I will try to disconnect my SATA DVD unit and ask the mainboard
support (Asus) for advice (last
time they were useless, but hope dies last...)

Regards,
David

Hi DAvid,


I was somehow happy to find that I wasn't alone with this OK freezing
issue. Have you found a solution ? I'm stuck with my 500GB external
USB that untill not that long ago was working fine.
