Our USB transfer speed tests are conducted with a Super Talent Luxio 64GB Flash Drive and USB 2.0/FireWire based Maxtor OneTouch II external hard drive. In the small file test, we transfer a 421MB folder containing 100 files of various sizes from our hard drive to the USB Flash drive. In the large file test, we transfer a 1.90GB file folder containing 17 different files from our hard drive to the external drive utilizing the USB 2.0 interface.
USB performance with Windows 7 and Vista continues to suffer when compared to XP. Windows 7 is clearly better than Vista at this point, but it still trails XP.
