Hi, just switched from a USB2 PC to a USB3 system and my 4TB drive is unable to sustain writes and even more writes and reads simultaneously.
I did not notice it until now because of the db locks. But i ran a benchmark with ubuntu DISKS tool and sometimes i get 6MB/s writes on the benchmark witch does simultaneously read/writes.
Tested sequential writes with FIO and they are also bad and unconsistents. I guess it is going to die soon.
It is a Toshiba Canvio Basic : stay away from this atrocity.
That said, i need another HDD 4TB at least. Do you have any models to advise ?
I prefer a 2.5" because it’s self powered and i run on a laptop so in case of power outage, the battery acts as a UPS for the whole setup
