Computer Experts- Get In Here!!! UPDATED SEE UPDATE, POST 66 Sorry, this is going to be long. Colin Powell, etc. I installed a new 4T hard drive in my desktop PC. Windows 7 can only handle 2.2T so I had to use a disk manager that enabled me to use all 4T. I transferred about 1.8T of files from one of the other internal drives to this new one, no problem. I also have some files on my laptop that I want to transfer to the new 4T drive on my desktop. I tried to use windows explorer to move the files through my wireless network. I knew it was going to be slow but it was the easiest way for me. Here is where the problem starts. After an indeterminate time, my desktop froze up. I tried several times and it always froze. I decided to transfer the files from the laptop to an external hard drive and then to the new 4T drive on my desktop. Again, I was using windows explorer. It transfers at about 32mb/s for between one to two minutes. The transfer rate then starts to drop. The cursor starts to blink and everything on the PC slows down until it completely freezes. I had added some software after I installed the new drive. I uninstalled it to see if there was a conflict. I had also added a USB wireless connection. First I just disconnected it. No change, then I removed the software. No change. I did a restore to right after I finished installing the new 4T drive. Problem still there. I'm tempted to say that it's either the new drive or the Disk manager. If it was that, my internal drive would have had problems transferring data, wouldn't it? I might add that the desktop runs fine as long as I'm not trying to transfer files from an external source. Anybody ever heard of this problem? Any suggestions? Please return to your dick jokes. Edit: Both machines have 64 bit Win 7 premium installed.
