My complaint:

I ordered an 8Tb high-speed USB disk drive from Wish (I actually ordered two). When I plugged it into my computer, it showed up not as an 8Tb hard drive, but as four 2Tb hard drives. So far not too horrible, but still . . .

Then, when I tried to use the drive, it was unbelievably slow. I have it connected on a USB3.0 port using a USB3.0 cable on a high-speed, powerful Windows desktop. I’m trying to offload some video file, and the speed is unbelievably slow. I’m showing a transfer rate of 5.3 megabits per second. That is hardly the Ultra Fast file transfer 500 MS that was advertised

I didn't say that the drive only had 4Tb. It has 8Tb, but it has it as 4 individual drives of 2Tb each. Very weird. I thought you were advertising a NORMAL 8Tb drive. That's 8Tb on ONE drive. Also, this drive is the slowest disk drive I have ever encountered in my life. I work in IT and have done so since the 1970s. This drive is unbelievably slow, but I can't figure out why. I'm running it on a powerful computer with USB 3.0 ports and cables that work fine for every other drive I have. I'm still trying to figure out what is wrong but, for the moment, the drive has been tied up for three days just having some files copied onto it. Also, sorry, but I don't have the shipping label you are asking for. I think that got tossed when we opened the package. All I have is the e-mail notification that the package has been delivered, which I sent you. Thank you. I ordered two drives, but I have only put the one on my computer. I've had so much trouble with it that I hadn't even opened the other one until you told me to send you a picture of it. G Gregg | Jan 19, 2021 Hi Gregg, Thanks for writing in and being patient.
