I recently, well I say recently but it was late 2011 I decided on building a new RIG, the final hardware change was my external HDD which I bought last week and a couple of days ago I connected and copied everything from my old HDD to the new one. It's insanely fast, USB3.0 is really fast. Although, coupled with Buffalo utilities it's even faster.
When I restarted my system after configuring everything in the Buffalo utilities I restarted and it was fine everything was working as it should be until I used my PC today and it booted really slow. In fact it was so slow I had to reboot it again and it was even slower than before. I disconnected the HDD and rebooted and it was there in a flash...? Okay, this is odd, I have come across this before with an external HDD but this is the first time that I've encountered a problem with USB3.0.
Scratching my head and coatie I pondered on what is potentially causing the problem, I then had a EUREKA moment. The Buffalo utilities use RAMDISK which is basically a virtual HDD which uses RAM. I delayed the boot of Buffalo Utilities and rebooted and it was fine. Whatever is causing the slow boot it's being caused by Buffalo. If I delay the loading of the software it's fine.
Anybody else experienced similar problems with Buffalo 2.0TB HD-LB2.0TU3-EU using Windows 7.
