Disk being at 100% activity for several seconds at a time for no apparent reason is often a sign of a failing drive. If this is what you are seeing, you may want to run the manufacturer's diagnostic tool to see if that may be the case here and start backing up any important data that may be on it.

I mean USB is not the fastest transfer method, but if its USB 3.0 it should be ok. But dont expect the greatest performance on it. I really recommend you buy an SSD.
