Hey friends,

First this is  the hardware I have on the computer : 

Motherboard Name:      Intel Pearl Creek DG31PR

CPU Type:           DualCore Intel Core 2 Duo E7200, 2533 MHz (9.5 x 267)

Drive #1 - WDC WD3200AAKS-00VYA0 (298 GB)

Drive #2 - WDC WD3200AAJS-08L7A0 (298 GB)

(I want to note that both hdd  are not SSD drives)

Memory :  4GB DDR2


First, I apologize for my  bad English

I have a strange computer problem

In recent months, one of the  hdd drives on the computer has started

to disappear

It should be noted that I did not hear any special noise from the drive .. or end-of-life clicks

When that is  happen I would open the computer case .. Disconnect the hard disk and return it and then the next boot  would appear normal  on windows and like nothing happened.

Now the hard drive from the model  WDC WD3200AAKS-00VYA0 (298 GB)

And its shown on my windows and I can access to it

But when I try to copy files from it the speed is very low  like 100 kb\s

Or slower .

While the second disk number 2 (WDC WD3200AAJS-08L7A0 (298 GB)

 is transferring the files at very high speeds .


I have attached a picture to show you the differences

Between copying from each disk


Does anyone have an idea how to solve the problem? And why is this happening?


Thanks in advance everyone

It could be that the hard drive is failing, but you could also try replacing the data cable and see if that helps as it sometimes can fail. Running the manufacturer diagnostics would be the first thing to try and see if it notices anything.
