I have just upgraded my operating system to Windows 8, and am trying to use my external hard drive enclosure. However, when I try to use it, it is uselessly slow. Often times Windows explorer will freeze when trying to open up My Computer, and it can take up to a minute just to view the contents of a particular folder, let alone copying files.
This drive worked just fine on Windows 7, so I know the drive is not at fault. It is also in NTFS format. For clarity here is the external hard drive enclosure I am using: http://www.rocketfishproducts.com/products/computer-accessories/RF-AHD35.html
Is there something that can be done about this?
Thank you for your time.
