Hi jay6461,



Welcome to the HP Forums!


I would like to take a moment and thank you for using the forum, it is a great place to find answers. For you to have the best experience in the HP forum, I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide First Time Here? Learn How to Post and More.


I see that your USB transfer rates have dropped dramatically since the first day.

Here are some steps you can try.

1. Uninstall and Reinstall the USB driver in Device Manager


2, Do a Refresh PC Refresh Your PC to Resolve Problems (Windows 8)


3. Do a restore back to a known good date.   Using Microsoft System Restore (Windows 8)


4. Do a factory recovery Performing an HP System Recovery (Windows 8)

During the recovery process you will receive a prompt to backup your personal data, if you have not done this yet, I suggest that you do it now to prevent data loss.  Restoring Files that were Backed Up Using HP Recovery Manager (Windows 8)


You also have the option to contact HP support for help.
