Hi I have bought a brand new 3TB Seagate hard drive. I tried to copy data from my older hard drives to the new one, but it always stops copying selected data set after some time and the file manager stays frozen until powering off the docking station or unplugging the USB 3.0 cable. I have tried Windows Explorer and also Total Commander, but the same thing happened in both cases.
I am using Icy Box IB-120StU3, a two slot SATA/USB3.0 docking station to copy data. I am using this device for a longer time and it has been working well with my older hard drives, so I would say it is not the cause of the issue.
My operating system is Windows 7 / 64bit and I am using Dell E6530 laptop with Intel Core i7 processor.
Should I return the new hard drive or could it be an software issue? Thank you for helping me.
