Hard Drive freezing file manager

  Lukas Erlich 21:59 02 Jan 2019

Hello, I have problem with my hard drive(Seagate Expansion Portable 1TB), when i plug it in, it acts as healthy, but when I want to get data, or write new to it, it freezes the file manager and others applications, working with drive (like disk manager etc.) and after while of not responding waves it freezes also windows. Led is blinking after some work with drive. I tried different ports, different computer, different operating system, I changed cable, nothing helped. Disk manager finaly worked after a day of waiting and trying and it says that drive is OK, also format and usage is right. I need those data, so I haven't tried formating, because of data loss. I don't know if it can be related, but I made "disk check" on that drive, using command "chkdsk E: /f /r", before.

Sorry for bad English, it's not my native language.
