How to Speed up usb file transfer
Tip 1 : Transfer one file at a timeYou need to transfer one file at a time. If you transfer more than one file, you will get less speed. Remember, computer will not share speed equally, instead it will reduce the speed. If you want to send multiple files, select all the files and send at once. When send all files at once,computer considers it as one file and it transfers with full speed.
Tip 2 : Close all running programsWhen you want to speed up usb file transfer, you need to close remaining running programs. When you run more programs, programs consumes computer resources like RAM and disk space. This will have effect on data transfer speed.
Tip 3 : Use single usb at a timeDon’t use more than one usb at a time. Use only one usb and send only one file at a time.
Tip 4 : Change removal policy“Quick Removal” and “Better performance” are the two removal policies available for usb. By default Windows enables “Quick Removal” policy. In “Quick removal” policy, you can remove your pen drive when you want. You will not lose data, Even if you remove pen drive without clicking on “safely remove hardware and eject media”. But in “Better performance” policy you must remove usb safely other wise there is a chance that you may lose data. If you enable “Better performance” policy, you may get better speed.
Follow below steps to enable “Better performance” policy.
- Place your pen drive in usb port.
- Go to “My computer”.
- Right click on your usb name.
Click on Properties. You will see “Properties” window as shown below.

Click on “Change Settings” shown in above screenshot. You will see another properties window.

- Click “Ok”.
I have transferred a file with two options. Maximum speed was 4.85 Mb/S with “Quick removal” option where 5.04 MB/S with “Better performance” option. For such small improvement, you need not to put pen drive in risky mode. Because you must safe remove pen drive with this mode other wise you may lose data. Even if you lose data you can recover lost data from usb.
