How to Speed ​​Up the Process of Transferring Computer Files to Flashdisk 

We all have old flashdisk and want to speed up the process of transferring files from a computer to faster and faster ones that flash around for one reason or another, maybe in a desk drawer or in an old coffee cup somewhere, but do you know that you can’t continue use your old drive,

but can you really improve their performance too?

Older flash drives tend to have a smaller capacity and cannot accommodate files that are too large for lower read / write speeds, but that does not mean they are useless. By following the USB tips below, you can also improve the performance of your old USB drive so that it can be used again!

Increase Flashdisk Performance

Step 1: Open “My Computer”.

Step 2: Right-click the Flashdisk you want, then select “Properties” from the popup window.

Step 3: Find and click the “Hardware” tab.

Step 4: Select your USB drive again from the list of available drives. 

Step 5: After your drive is selected, press the “Properties” button near the bottom right corner of your menu.

Step 6: Click on the “Policy” Tab. 

Step 7: Choose “Optimize for Performance”

Step 8: Click “OK” to complete the optimization.

All we’ve done so far is to tell your computer how you want to handle a USB Drive. To achieve a much faster speed, we must really format the USB drive.

Note: Before you format your USB drive, BACKUP all your files on the USB drive. Formatting will permanently delete all your files on the drive!

Format the Flashdisk 

Step 1: Open “My Computer”.

Step 2: Right-click the Flash drive that you want, then select “Format” from the popup window.

Step 3: Under File Systems, Select “NTFS” if you are running a newer version of Windows such as Vista or Windows 7, or select “FAT 16” if you are running an earlier version of Windows.

Note: If you cannot see NTFS as an option, that means your computer has written caching turned off and must be activated. Also XP users will not see an increase in performance by formatting to NTFS.

Step 4: Press “Start” and your computer will start formatting your flashdisk . Press OK when done.

You now have to have a USB Flashdisk that is much faster! However, it should be noted that depending on the windows xp / 7/8/10 you use and your own USB drive, performance gains vary.
