I installed an OS on a USB stick and installed Windows 8 on my htpc for reasons I won't get into. The OS on the USB stick scrubs significantly slower than it did on the SSD. is that normal, are USB sticks just slower than SSD?
Generally yes. But it depends on the USB stick and if you are using USB2 or USB3. The cruzer extremes can get over 200MB/s read/write. SSDs generally are in the 500MB range.
If you are using a slower USB stick on USB2 ... you might be in the 5-10MB/s range.
