Why max. memory on HP8300

December 7, 2017 at 15:07:10
Specs: Windows 7, AMD32
I have 2 external memories each 1T with their own
power-supply, I would put another one having 2T,
but then my internet-connection get down, I tried
every thing, reboot, firefox, disconnect power-supply, checking the USB3 ports and, and.
Is there a max. limit for the external memory in
my HP, and how can my interconn. go down ??
I had to go the hard way to reinstall, a hard job
I am now running with the 2 each having 1T

External hard drives do not affect your internet connection. Whatever caused it was nothing to do with adding them.

Hard drives are not memory, they're data storage devices. Why would you need all (1TB + 1TB + 2TB) connected at the same time? Did you try the 2TB by itself?

Depends on where you connected the external harddrives to.

So if you've connected the external harddrives to your router and the router shares the drives to all devices in your network, you may get such issues in connection speed.

E.g.:
In this constellation, if you download a big file from the internet and store this file to a harddrive, connected to the router, the file gets downloaded from the internet to your router, which directly hands over the file to your computer.
Your computer then stores the file to the harddrive, connected to your router, which means, the download from the internet and the upload to the router attached harddrive both needs network speed.

On a wireless connection, this might be consume a lot of network speed.

Further to #1. Were the external drives connected to a normal USB socket on the computer?
