How much space is available on the drive ?
What data is on the drive ?
Are you able to access the drive ?
Has the drive been scanned for infections recently?
So Nothing strange on computer itself ? , only the External...
PS: If you are able to access the drive... When you Are Browsing through the drive is it slow ?
This is I'm assuming through USB 2.0 ?

2: mostly media (audio, video, pictures and family photos, and pc games such as Wheel of Fortune, Star Wars Jedi Academy, Fable, and Doom)
3:most of the time, sometimes it will not detect even though it's powered on
4: not yet but I intend to run some scans I got (Malaware Bytes, Super Anti Spyware)
yeah it's mostly the external drive giving me problems, the I/O error was the most recent as well as the file write error I got when I tried to move some files, and as of now it isn't lagging and yes it's a usb connected drive (usb 2.0)

Download that program and check the health percentage of your external drive.

Download this and install. Then use it to run a diagnostic on the drive.
Make sure that the usb cable used to connect the drive is of good quality, and is functioning correctly.
