    Hello
    Before I change of ext.hdd, I had a 6tb one and I had the very same problem with it
    In short, every minutes or so, it lags for several seconds (between 10 and 30 seconds)
    When I browse it or rename files, it randomly stop responding
    The cursor becomes a blue circle showing that it's laoding

    I'd like to know, what is the problem?
    Is it a common bug with all ext.hdd?
    Is it a problem with my USB 3.0 port?
    Is it a CPU thing? (Because mine is VERY old)

    Thanks

    You bought a new drive to replace the one that was "dead"?
    Sounds like a problem with your computer mate, not your drive.

    Alright
    It was doing the same thing with my previous drive, so i was wondering if it was normal for an ext.hdd lol
    So what could be the problem?
    USB port?
    CPU?

    I'd suggest reinstalling the USB drivers first.
    If that doesn't work, try another computer.

    Good advice. Remove the computer in question from the equation. Do your external drives work in a different machine?
