Hello,

I have an extra hard disk 500GB I found unused so I bought an enclosure for it to make it like external hard drive.

The issue is, when plug it to computer and try to transfer files around 200MB  it starts with decent speed then slows down to about 1 hour or less.

Do a diagnostic on the hard drive with Seatools for Windows. Run the short and long tests.

If the drive is WD the use the WD diagnostic software.

Edit: It may also be the USB port or the enclosure itself. Is the drive slow on another computer transferring the same files?

I would have to hazard a guess the drive is bad or it's the bridge card in the enclosure. You could verify this if you have space available to attach the drive internally and running the test again.
