External HDD slow after hibernate


#1

Hi

So i put my pc on windows 7 in hibernate state several times during the past month until one day the pc kind of freeze a bit specially one external hdd, then it went to normal again. Then after that i never use the hibernate again, the thing is that from time to time (often sometimes) the external hdd got slow down and i can not even open a simple picture with the “windows photo viewer” and i have to restart the pc to get the performance back.

So, does put the pc to hibernate can harm the pc or external hdd?.. any advice to solve the issue?

Thanks
