Recently my external USB drive has slowed to a crawl 2MB/Sec.   I changed portss, drives and nothing happens. It starts at 50-60 and just dies to 2.
Does no matter if I copy, move or use an application.

Data transfer rate also depends on the files that you are copying! There will be significant difference between 1GB single file and 1GB multiple files. First tell us please what you are copying and whats the number of files?

it can be due to a bad disk; can you test it on another PC to be sure?
and run a chkdsk on it

I tried everything suggested  with no success.  It seems that it is a Win 7 problem as when I reinstall Win 7 the problem went away.

The reinstall of Win 7 worked and nothing else did.

you don't seem to understand - this site WORKS with feedback
we give a suggestion - you try it - and report what happens; then we can narrow down to the problem
without your feedback - it's a guessing game...

I DO UNDERSTAND I didn't have internet access, or a keyboard that worked.  I am sorry if I was unable to give feedback.
