      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.

      Painfully Slow. Like 10-20 years ago slow.

      New 2017 maxed out Macbook Pro. USB-C to USB-C connection. I am backing up with Time Machine. I am not encrypting my data. I'm getting transfer speeds of about New 2017 maxed out Macbook Pro. USB-C to USB-C connection. I am backing up with Time Machine. I am not encrypting my data. I'm getting transfer speeds of about 1 MBps, nowhere near the advertised 136 MBps, not even 1% of that. This is unreal. This is going back. I'm sorry. Very disappointed that this is an Apple recommended product and it just doesn't perform even close to the advertised speed.
