i have one question here... my new HDD is for media only and no software installed on it... is it quite normal that sometimes it takes few seconds to load... ? but not all the time...

its like after 5-6 secs or so then it shows the content (its blank for a while then the green bar progress then it shows)... or is there something wrong? cause my other hardisk never encounter as such.. i hope i make the sense in explaining the situation here..

You may not have the security permissions set up right. That is usually what results in the behavior your are experiencing.

Start Menu -> Computer -> Right Click the Drive -> Properties -> Security tab -> Post a screen shot (Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums)

eviliony,
Which ever way you go brand wise you need to back up the critical data, photo's, financials, etc. But unless you have some redundancy you really have no absolute surety. I have dual back up redundancies in place and I feel fairly safe with my data but with the high cost and low warranty available to you, have you considered cloud back up like Carbonite?

Security setup looks good. No idea what may be causing your problem... I'll give it some thought and try to get back to you later.

You could try to Diagnose and repair Windows File and Folder Problems automatically.

Nope, that Fix It just repairs Windows explorer, so it may increase the speed for explorer to read the drive.

Can't think of any software at the moment beyond that. Best wishes that resolves the slow loading.

Check the power settings on the hard drive. I've had some that take a few seconds to spring back to life after they've spun down to idle.
