This is a story about USB sticks of the USB3 category.
I now have three such things, ranging from 8 GB to 64 GB.
Now EVERYbody know that when you plug a USB3 external drive into a USB3 port you get greased lightning performance...
(Yeah! Right! Spt n!...) Typically 100MB/Sec transfer (a few more nods of agreement).
Well, with EVERY 1 of these 3 sticks I get the most meek and mild and humble transfer rates - 5 MB/sec to sometimes a brief 20MB/sec.
Fair Dinkum! I get overall faster transfer using a USB2 stick!!??
Has anyone found this to be the case??? I have noted one thing: the USB3 sticks are all formatted FAT 32.
I (who knows how successfully) changed one to NTFS, but it did nothing to the performance.
And there it is...
