    Plug in the USB stick -> on the drive address click "Properties"-> Move to the "Hardware Tab"-> Highight the USB Stick-> Select "Properties" -> Select "Change Settings" -> Select "Policies Tab". Make sure the policy setting is "Quick Removal".
    Checked, both flash drives in both computers are set to "Quick removal", so I guess that is no it, any other idea?

    Then its got to be the speed of the 2 systems your talking about. Can you describe the 2 different systems ? CPU/Mother Boards/Manufacture. That would help.

    Long shot.

    Plug in the USB thumb you normally use, the erratic one. In My PC, make a note of it's drive letter. Eject it.

    On the machine in question, the one that is acting weird, go to Device manager.

    Click Portable Devices. Look for that drive letter and uninstall (right click>uninstall device) any and all occurrences of it.

    Plug the thumb drive back in. Windows will reinstall the driver/device.

    Try your operation that was running weird with the fluctuating speeds.

    I don't think that is it. The system where I have issues is the most modern one, MSI P65 8RF laptop (16 gb ram, nvme ssd, nvidia graphics, etc) The other one is a Intel 4930k on a Rampage IV Black edition, 32 gbram, few years old but in that one works just fine.


    Also tried the device manager uninstalling of the removable devices. No result. I am starting to think is just that Windows is acting funny?

    You've hit virtually al the obvious, and not so obvious, causes. Still funky. If you don't mind reinstalling your apps, a Refresh might be in order. It will keep your files and all data, and the Store Apps you have, but you would need to re-install any 3rd party apps.

    I think I prefer a factory reset, more than a refresh, after all I keep my files in a NAS, so reinstalling the 3rd party apps is the painful thing to do. I might have to wait a bit to do it, I don't have the time right now. I will let you know how it goes after. Thanks everyone for the help!

    I have this same issue, but with all transfers between HDD's, SSD's, and USB's. Does not matter which lane/port data is transfered.

    I am going with OP on this, as being a Windows 10 issue. These data transfers issues DO NOT EXIST when using my friends Win7 computer (actually get FASTER transfer speeds). This shows it's not a problem with the devices, as they run flawless on Win7.

    I am hoping someone with more technical know-how can chime in, because I'm pretty frustrated with this myself.

    Best of luck to OP.

File Transfer Speed Extremely Low in Performance & Maintenance
Hi. I was trying to copy a 2gb file over to another folder, and the transfer speed dropped down to kilobytes or even bytes per second. Sometimes, however, it wildly fluctuates all over the place - from 4KB/s to 50MB/s. How can I fix this? Thanks.
