Windows 7 pro 64 bit
only receiving 24.4mb a sec transfer speed usb 3.0

I recently bought a Seagate 5tb USB 3.0 external single hard drive from best buy. I am doing some file transfers from my win7 box to the drive and i notice the speed is not what i thought it would be like 100mb a sec not 24,4mb a second. i have a biostar TP678x motherboard and usb 3.0 drivers are installed, the bios usb 3.0 is enabled and the usb cable is plugged into the blue usb port for 3.0. for this transfer i am moving 98gb of content.

Try moving files in smaller batches or one at a time and see what your speeds are then.

I'm also using a Seagate hard disk, 1TB.
Writing speed (from internal HD to Seagate) is around 25 to 30 MBS. I guess it is OK

USB 3.0 Crystal Disk Mark - Overclockers UK Forums

"Testing my new Sandisk Extreme USB 3.0( a keystick or flashdrive if you like ): Extreme USB Flash Drive by SanDisk

I've run a few tests with crystal disk mark.

This is the first test I did while I had the official Gigabyte USB 3.0 drivers installed.

Then I installed
and tested again (Driver for List of Intel chipsets - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and up)

For comparison this is my old USB 2.0 Pico drive on a USB 3.0 port.

I'd be interested in the results of other people's USB drives. I bought this USB so I could have a fast install media to install windows. I use nLite and this new driver integrated into the boot.wim should make the install even faster than it was this time (about 20min vs well over an hour for old usb)

Also if you test enable (smart enable) XHCI in bios."

Transfer speed slowing down
I noticed that when I copy many small or large files between my partitions, the speed is slowing down. It starts at about 100MB/s, then after a few secs goes to 60MB/s and after another 30 seconds slows down to 30MB/s. Is this normal, or do I have a problem somewhere? Thanks in advance

File Transfer Speed
I have long wondered about the speed of transferring files from one drive/partition to another, but only recently found specific variations that evade any conclusions by myself. I have been downloading movies, which are destined to a partition on an internal drive, and which after organizing them,...

What should be the transfer speed in N standard?
hi. I would like to know what should be the speed when I transfer files through my wireless network. I've noticed that when I copy files, the speed is about 8MB/s and sometimes drops below. Does it have something to do with the reception percentage? Can I improve the transfer rate?
