I purchased a EZ-dock 2 and two WD 500GB Blue. I want to copy from Data drive D to one of the 500GB drives. After using the copy command on D drive and then the paste command to the Backup drive placed in the EZ-Dock 2 there appears a error message. "Location is not available" and nothing is copied. The drive has been formatted given a name "Backup 2" with a drive letter of "G". The drive is seated correctly. Mode setting 1 and 2 "off" & 3 "on". Looking for solutions to the problem
Thank you for your help, my ignorance is profound in these matters. I have successfully started the copy and I am getting 21 MB/sec transfer rate. I have the EZ-Dock on one of two USB 3.0 ports off the mother board. Is this rate typical for a USB 3.0? Total transfer 90+ gig of data.
I have a Intel Core i3-2120 cpu @ 3.30 GHz installed on a Gigabyte GA-Z77M-DH3 Motherboard. This is just a business desktop, no gamin or other. My intent for the use of the EZ-Dock is for to have a easily removable HD for when I travel and need all my data. My business requires me to keep all file for a minimum of 6 years so redundant back is desirable in case of fire or other disaster. How long is data stable on a mechanical or SSHD if stored in a safety deposit box?
