      Dropping out files

      I'm using USB-3 and it's dropping out files. For instance, is copy and paste 50 000 photos but only roughly 1-3000 will appear on hard drive. It very frustrati I'm using USB-3 and it's dropping out files. For instance, is copy and paste 50 000 photos but only roughly 1-3000 will appear on hard drive. It very frustrating. I have to copy and past only 100 at at time which is crazy since only 20% of the hard disk if full. It's also not very fast. I'm extremely disappointed that this is so unreliable.
