    Copy speed drops to 0 when copying files between 2 Hdd's


    There is 3 hdd's installed to my rig:
    1 is 55gb kingston ssd where i run my windows
    2 is 1tb hitachi where i keep my games and other junk
    3 is seagates 250gb laptop hdd.

    The main problem was that sometimes when opening or just clicking some folders freezes the file explorer and it crashes after it, so i tought to format the second hdd to make it work better now it seems work ok except for moving files from hdd to another.
    When copying the copy speed just at random point drops to 0% and leaves the hdd 3 to hang 100% and the hdd 2 is dropping to 0%.
    What i have tried:
    I ran hdd regenerator and 18 bad sectors were fixed
    Also tried to change sata ports
    That's not much but can't figure anythin else for now and i am starting to suspect that my hdd is gone bad :/
    also when downloading ~100mb file from internet it makes same thing but i don't know is it same problem...

    A lot of folks have been having issues with a particular update, many posts in the sound sub-forum: No Sound- The device is being used by another application

    Never mind, somehow I cross-posted here.
