Windows 7: Impossibly slow USB 3.0..

17 Nov 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

No problem.. I just am sorry for 'wasting' people's time here complaining about what turns out to be a USB2.0 drive!! But as I say, it only cost me about $5 as far as I recall, and as a 32GB USB2.0 drive it functions perfectly, so I still got a great bargain. (I learned to be a bit more 'street wise' to this sort of thing though after I'd been living in Thailand a while!).

Sounds like you got a bargain. Not everything has to be fast to be good. Also please don't feel like you wasted our time. (But I'd be happy to bill you if it will make you feel better) I often overlook things plainly obvious to others. I play it off by saying it's a common failing of a genius. :)

Aloha all, I have had incredible problems since this afternoon. My less than 1 month old system, which was quite fast and would boot up in under 30 seconds, has slowed to a crawl. Boot now takes several minutes, and I am not certain it actually finishes as I've noticed that Steam usually...
