Hello.

I just bought a External harddrive today, and i want to copy some of my data from my D: Drive to the External harddrive...

But the speed of which it tranfers is at like 10KB/sec to 1MB/sec

It uses USB 3.0
Im not quite sure what i can do to make it faster, but i know this is unusually slow.

Thanks

Did you pkug it into a usb 3 slot on the pc? If the usb is red, it is 3. if it is white, nope.

You will only be able to transmit at 2.0 speeds.

So there is nothing i can do at this point? i need to copy more than 30+ GB, and it says that just copying 5 gb is gonna take 8-10 hours at this rate
Nada, nunca, nothing. "A chain is only as strong as its weakest link."

If you are performing a stamdard cut and copy from the file manager, you coukd try to use a cmd line and xcopy. Xcopy, or robocopy from a admin privaliged command prompt might speed it up.

Look up robocopy.

robocopy d:\path\to\share\folder C:\destination-device\path\to\store\files
