Computer Freeze When Transferring Large Data

I have a problem regarding the freezing of the Win7 when I transfer a large data (~10 GB) from my crucial M4 SSD to any other drive. I searched through many questions regarding similar issues but couldn't find a solution that works for me.

 

Here is my situation. I have 3 drivers installed in my computer and also have an external drive:

Drive 1 - Main drive with OS installed on it, 128 GB crucial SSD,

Drive 2 - 2 TB , 7200 rpm SATA drive

Drive 3 - 512 GB Crucial m4 512GB SSD

Drive 4 (External drive) - 480 GB u32 usb3 portable SSD

 

When I transfer the data from Drive 1,2 or 4 to any of the other drivers then everything works fine. However, when I transfer the data from Drive 3 to any other drivers then about 70% of time the computer just freezes and I need to restart it.

 

I tried two solutions:

1- From this location I made the value of the LargeSystemCache as 1: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management. But this changed nothing.

 

2- I used TeraCopy program to copy the file. This solution actually WORKS. However, the only drawback is it transfers the data with a more less constant speed of 100 MB/sec when I am doing the transfer from Drive 3 to Drive 4.

However, supposedly Drive 4 should go upto 400 MB/sec.

 

So, is there a way to make the transfer from Drive 3 to Drive 4, without causing the computer freeze and at a speed > 200 MB/sec? Thanks in advance for answers.

Not sure if you fixed this yet but I had the same issue for a long time and it turned out to be my PSU. Swap that out and see if your problem goes away.

Thanks for the suggestion. I haven't solved this issue unfortunately. Can there be any other solutions, I want to change the PSU as a last resort? Can it be just a defective SSD , do you think it makes sense to sent it back?

If you post up the SMART info from CrystalDiskInfo we can see if the drive has logged any faults.
