Jared wrote:I never use Disk Drill, because there are much better programs out there. Maybe the program is just slow. A few other things that might cause speed issues:
1. If you are USB 2.0 connected rather than USB 3.0 or direct SATA. Even if you are in a 3.0 port your Sata to USB adapter might be only 2.0
2. The drive may well have a firmware malfunction. This is especially likely if it is a Grenada drive (e.g. ST2000DM0...)
3. The drive might have bad sectors. A good program will alert to this, but D.D. might not.
