    cannot write on USB hard drive

    my problem is kinda strange and very annoying
    this problem started a month ago
    when i try to access , copy or read data from my HDD there is no problem at all
    but when i try to copy or move new data to my External hard drive copying speed drops from 30-60 Mb/s to few KBs for about a minute then spikes up few times then i get error message saying the location is not available
    on task manager the External HDD usage is 100% but 0 read speed and 0 write speed
    i tried checking for errors multiple times all tests were negative
    today windows asked me to check for errors
    i did it but this happened

    There could be many possibilities with the drive, with the USB port/s, with the USB controller on the motherboard, with the USB cable, etc. Could also be an issue using a USB 3.0 device on USB 2.0 port, a problem using a USB 2.0 cable when a USB 3.0 cable would be called for. I'd try the drive on a different computer to verify some of these points. Could also be the drive is going bad.

    How old is the drive in the enclosure. Looking at checkdisk, either the drive is failing or the controller in the enclosure is failing. Other possibilities are a power issue. Does the enclosure have its own power pack?
