I'm having a performance issue with my backup hard drive.
It's a SATA drive, but lately transferring data has been taking forever — about 5Mo/s — and sometimes it freezes.
So I'm thinking the hard drive is dying, but
fsck and S.M.A.R.T. both say it's clean.
I tried to benchmark it with
gnome-disk-utility but it gave me an error saying that the drive is too slow to benchmark.
Is there anything I can do? If so, what?
