Very Slow USB Transfer Rates with External Drives With Windows 10 2004


Recommended Posts

Hey All

 

Windows 10 Pro x64 2004 (Desktop) 

and Windows 10 Home x64 2004 (Laptop)

 

Both Machines have really slow usb transfer with 3.0 Drivers, and one usb 3.1 enclosure on Desktop,  Desktop was recently upgraded hardware wise,  i don't remember drives being this slow on old board,      Laptop i never seen it this slow either, which is strange, i haven't changed any settings on it.

 

In the Enclosure #1, USB 3.0, Seagate 8TB drive 

Enclosure #2, USB 3.1 & Type C cable option for Laptop

 

Took hours to do a small folder transfer of music yesterday to that drive,   at least 6-12 hours,  Macrium reflect backup of storage drive, been going now for hours on Laptop, and still not done

 

any tips, or suggestions or fixes?

Hello,


You mentioned the desktop was recently upgraded with a new motherboard.  Did you erase its drive and perform a clean installation of Windows 10 Version 2004?
 

Did you ensure the latest USB 3.0 drivers are installed for the two computers?  If they are using generic Microsoft-provided drivers, you might want to see if newer ones are available from ASMedia, Cypress Semiconductor, Fresco Logic, Intel, Renesas (formerly NEC), STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments, and so forth, installing those, and seeing if there is any performance improvement.

 

You may want to try toggling UASP on and off for the drives to see if that makes any difference.

 

Regards,

Well Desktop didn't perform a clean install as yet,  but i can in a few minutes here

 

Drivers checked to see if latest Intel drivers on both systems for the usb devices--was latest

 

Will check on the UASP on and off option, and see if that makes any difference

 

((Should have Desktop clean install done shortly today,  in process of backing up personal files, and getting drivers together, and such at this point, i knew i should've done one soon as i got system home that day, but was anxious to game lol)

I found this thread after searching for this issue.  I just got the update to 2004 through win update this morning, and noticed transfer speeds to my USB hard drive went from 170 MB/s to 5 MB/s.  I've already rolled back which has fixed it. 

 

Have you had any luck solving this issue?

I've also got this weird issue on my Core i7 6700K build. The USB 3 port runs slower than USB 1 speed, but the USB 2 port outperforms it! It seems to be the crappy Renesas controller, my old Dell Precision M6600 has a Renesas controller too and keeps crapping out for no apprent reason with "Unexpected I/O error" on large USB 3 transfers. Never managed to solve it on both, even after reflashing USB 3 controller firmware. External HDD's are electrically/mechanically fine and not faulty.

No Luck Really Solving as yet,  still seem a bit slow,  especially on Laptop machine,  gotta check more on Desktop machine, which i plan to do shortly here.     

 

Desktop was clean installed on the new hardware finally, so might be a little improvement on this PC thankfully,  still gotta check laptop out more

 

I hope it's just a bug with Windows 10 2004 and eventually is fixed with a cumulative update, or driver or something, and such.      Too much trouble to rollback to 1909 at moment, so guess will just patiently wait at this point, and hopefully i can stand the transfer speed of the drives for now

My 2013 model of the Dell XPS-15 has three USB 3 ports.  Hardware connections are not so reliable now, often being loose.

Windows Gadgets, "Disk Monitor" version 16.6, will give you a continuous real time feedback of whatever drives you need to monitor, on your chosen desktops.  

As others suggest here, check with Linux.  GKRELLM is available for both Linux & Windows.  It also offers real time, on screen monitoring of transfer speeds.
