So, I bought a Transcend 1TB External USB HDD two months ago. It was delivered with FAT32 filesystem. After some time I saw I can’t copy single files sized more than 4GB, I looked up on the internet and found a command line code to convert from FAT32 to NTFS without formatting it or losing all my data. So my HDD had only 50gb free and I was so happy, then came the problem.
One day I couldn’t access to my game backup folder. Browsing the HDD was so slow and there was loading all the time. Only few folders were accessible and showed CAN NOT READ FROM SOURCE ERROR when I tried to open or delete anything.
I knew it needs formatting. So, After two days taking some important file backup(which I could access), I put it in format but after 4 hours of formatting only 40% formatting completed(NTFS). What should I do?
Will this HDD create anymore problem in future? Why did that CAN NOT READ FROM SOURCE ERROR happened?
Should I replace it?
