How do I unleash a Sandisk Cruzer 32GB Usb Drive's speed
« on: November 20, 2015, 06:16:45 PM »
Hi

I never really knew what size of sectors to choose when formatting it. Aslo theres an option in properties called ready boost don't know if it actually works.
So i you know a little bit about that subject please tell me.
I have a SDCZ36-032G model, it is currently formatted in ntfs, i don't recall the sector size i put, and it has 4 versions of windows and many tools to reboot in dos with xboot.

A similar question was on the ScanDisk forum a few years back.
Poor write speed ob 16GB cruzer
The thread did not provide a sure answer. If you really need more speed, you have to buy a premium device.

Like hacker just published a review of the new USB 3.0 flash drives.
Five Best USB 3.0 Flash Drives
They review the SanDisk Extreme 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive and give it good marks. With a price of $33 it better be good!

I was going to write "$33 is cheap for any 64 GB USB flash drive, whether 3.0 or not", but I just did some checking. Boy have prices come down a lot! I see I can get (in a local store) a SanDisk Ultra Fit 64 GB USB 3.0 drive for the equivalent of $22. One problem for me in taking advantage of USB 3.0 devices is my current PC only has one USB 3.0 port, and it's at the back and already has a USB 3.0 external hard drive connected. Hubs are not too expensive although I see some devices won't work through a hub.
