I am running an HP a6720f and trying to sync my photos to an external hard drive. I have tried to use both SyncBack and simply copying folders. In each instance, the process seems to start fine and initially copies well, but within a short time, it slows to a near halt. In all cases, my DPCs are jumping up from being insignificant (varying from 0-5%) to being around 35%, with hardware interrupts around 16%.
I am not running any other programs when this happens. All I want to do is backup my pictures.
The drive is a 500gb SimpleDrive. When I first boot the computer, I have no trouble accessing the drive or any files on the drive.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
