Could you add to your script and get it to record free space on the SD card and free system memory?
I'm assuming that after a power reset all runs normal again for a while?

Just so the rest of the world knows, that's 44°C and -35°C :roll:

If you can do it on Debian you can probably do the same on the RPi.

Try the following command in a terminal. lsusb -t

I think Port 1 is the hub, and that ports 2 and 3 will be what you want to label.

Re: Very frequent unbearable lag, 40 seconds to open Vim

Apart from mouse keyboard and display do you have anything else plugged into the RPi?

Which power supply are you using? What is it's rated volts and amps?

Are you powering the USB drive directly from the RPi?
