I only received the "delayed write failed" error once but it's come at the same time I'm having problems moving any files from my C Drive over to either my external or my storage drive (2nd).
When I try to move files over or use Winrar to rar any files on either drive (storage or external, not my C:) the operation becomes desperately slow. Everything begins to freeze up and it takes about 5-10mins before I can actually cancel. Now I can access the files with no problem and move them FROM both my storage and external drive without any issues. But moving files TO my external or storage is incredibly slow to the point of impossible.
I received the "delayed write failed" error one time while extracting a DVD to my storage drive while I slept, that was yesterday. I read there may be a cache issue and checked my external drive properties in my device manager to see if I had "This setting disables write cacheing.." checkmarked and I do which is supposedly the right thing.
Hopefully I've explained that right, please help!
Update: It seems to be only my external now and only with transfering files to not pulling files off. I did some reading and I'll try a diagnostic tool if I can find one from Western Digital for their 250GB drive. If I figure out a solution I'll post it here.
Update 2: Tried moving files over from my other machine on my network to the external. NO problems. Now I'm *really* confused. Just to catch up, I can't move files from my internal drives to my external Western Digital without it freezing up. However, I can save files from another machine on my network to that same drive and have no problems. I have disabled the write cache. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'll post more info after more tests.
