Hi people, Yesterday, I received my Seagate 5tb portable hdd and when I try to write anything on it, it goes slow, really slow. Is there a reason for this? Did I get a bad drive? I'll post my benchmark below this. it makes absolutely no sense, would I be better off buying a WD elements portable 5tb hdd for the same price? View: https://imgur.com/a/OLGL1ha

I've seen people test these drives and they seemed to copy, download and install at 100mb/s while I am stuck at 2... I hope someone knows If I should return it to get a new one, or if I should just get the WD drive. Thanks in advance.
