I have a brand new computer I just finished building that I am running Win10 on and an old one running Win7. I've got about 375 GB of stuff I want to move over - primarily music and pictures. I've put all of this stuff onto a SeaGate GoFlex 1TB external drive.
When I try to copy the entire 375 GB folder, the transfer stopped after a minute or so and the drive and Windows Explorer both became non-responsive.
When I try to copy any of the folders(I broke the huge 375 GB thing into 5 different folders) piecemail, the same thing happens.
I took the actual hard drive out of my Win7 machine, installed it into the HD cage of my Win10 one, and tried to transfer that way, and the same thing happened.
CHKDSK on the brand new HDD and the External revealed no issues - I didn't run it on the old HDD (though it's running now and it's the only HDD in my old machine, so I don't suspect it is the issue). Device Manager didn't detect any driver issues on the GoFlex either.
Does anybody have any suggestions? Is this a Win10 thing? Do I need to go back to Win7 and try to do the transfer that way?
