Having Poor Performance on exFAT Formatted External USB HardDisk
Recently I have formatted my Usb External Harddisk with exFAT, as I heard of the benefits of it over FAT32.
Its an IMATION Drive with 320gb storage.
Device Properties: TOSHIBA MK3252GSX USB Device
The problem is that it takes forever to copy files from the drive as compared to when the format was FAT32.
Currently, Im trying to backup all my files on my PC and I've been trying to copy out 60gb of Data that I started 10+ hours ago.
The wierd thing is the progress bar moves a fraction and then stops for about 5mins before continuing the another fraction.
I have totally no idea how to speed this up!
Anyway, I am going to reformat it into another filesystem. Should I choose NTFS or FAT32?
