I have over 5TB of Xbox 360 ISOs, and when I'm trying to transfer a large number of these games to any random external USB drive, I find that exISO has this tendency to hang and slow down tremendously after about the extraction of 15 or so games. It will take a standard 3-5 minutes extracting the first couple of ISOs, but then at some point it just really bogs down, taking about an hour per game.
I need something that is stable and can reliably extract several hundred ISOs so I can just set it and leave it overnight or whatever. Xbox Image Browser is fast but, as far as I can tell, can only extract single ISOs. Anything else I've tried has a similarly limited feature set.
Has anyone experienced this kind of slowdown with exISO? I haven't had enough experience with it to pinpoint exactly when or why it happens, but something is definitely going on. For the purposes of being thorough, I am using a custom PC using a Pentium Dual Core e5200 @ 2.5ghz. It has 4GB of RAM and all my games are stored across 3 hard drives that are all 2TB each for a total of 6TB of storage: 2 SATA hard drives and 1 USB external hard drive.
Also, here are some of the things I've tried in efforts to solve this matter, assuming it wasn't inherent to exISO:

- Turned off all power settings that sleep/modify hard drive behavior, including USB.
- Monitored CPU usage which stayed around 20-30%, an average of 15% coming from exISO (but more often much lower)
- I found that one external drive I was transferring to had its removal policy set to "Quick removal" and I noticed an initial and significant improvement in transfer speeds upon changing it. However, exISO still tapered down to a crawl after so many ISOs were extracted.
