    Secondary HDD freezes when writting to/deleting files


    Since late Sep 2015 updates, I have been getting random freezes when writing files to secondary HDD via Internet Download Manager and also freezes when deleting big file in that HDD.

    Things done to fix but failed:
    1. update Internet Download Manager to latest version
    2. replaced secondary HDD
    3. reformat and install Win 10 on SSD

    Anyone here experience the same?

    Before 22 Sep 2015, I don't have this issue.

    Did you also replace the Sata cable when you replaced the secondary HD ?

    No, but upon inspection, found the cable not properly aligned to the Oric hard disk rack used. The cable is a combo with both sata data and power in a single. Will monitor now after unplug and replug in.

    After 2 days of downloading using internet download manager and writting to secondary HDD, can safely confirm that the sata data/power cable is the culprit. No more freeze during writting.
