Slow USB performance
#1
Has anyone experienced slow USB performance as far as transfer speed goes? My file transfer speed between USB connected hard drives never reaches above 800kb/s where my raspberry pi 3 normally transfers between 15mb/s to 18mb/s. The raspberry pi 3 was my first SBC and I'm still very inexperienced in regards to linux operating systems.  The Pi uses the ubuntu mate system and I have a feeling that I didn't install needed packages for the debian based tinkerOS. I read that unlike the Pi the Tinker Board doesn't share bandwidth with the LAN which to me should result in a much higher transfer speed between usb connected drives. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

No idea, I transfer data from my usb3.0 drive read or write can be 29~31mb/s.

Thanks frankwu for the reply. What file system are your drives? I was expecting the speeds you posted but I haven't seen anywhere close to those speeds. Also, did you install any packages to use your drive like usbmount?

Hi shagathlete

this is my USB Drive
Model: SONY USM16X USB3.0 16G 
File System: FAT32

And, I did not install any packages to mount usb.
What is your device and fs?

There are two drives, both from seagate. They are both formatted in ext4. Since I had not done much with the tinkerboard yet I decided to try a fresh install and it fixed the problem. The speeds are at the expected values now. I'm going to try an ntfs drive and see if that's what caused the slowdown.
