    i hate that.

    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.

    anyone in here knows a way around this problem?

    Hi flashyprince, and welcome to TSG,

    You may want to become familiar with the site rules and clean up your post.
    It might help if we knew exactly what kind of drives you are using and their interface to the motherboard. Do you if and ho badly they may be fragmented.
