    Remember that, despite USB3.x is a fast communication device, a HDD is slow. I was transferring data from one SATA 6 HDD to another and the transfer rates were around 50MB/s (small files) to 75MB/s (big files).
    Another point to consider is Anti virus. It scans each file before transfer.

    During a file transfer, what is the average speed? (Use CrystalDiskMark) Portable, don't need to install.

    Ok Will check on the average file transfer with that portable program. Power Supply on Desktop is EVGA G3 650 Watt, shop said was enough on that aspect. Laptops red ports should be usb 3, but i haven't confirmed it for sure as yet, so far working on Desktop this morning for starters.

    Desktop clean install done mostly, a few things left to install

    Laptop definitely only has usb 3.0

    Well Desktop think solved, Will check on the laptop more tomorrow when i do Tuesday Patches, hopefully that machine is solved as well, and all is good now.

    Clean installed Windows Pro 2004 on Desktop, much better thus far, while that one usb port still works same on front of case, 1 working port for usb 2.0 and usb 3.0 in front is manageable til i can get a powered usb hub, then should solve all my issues i hope at once

    Laptop in case anyone wondered is HP Omen 15 ce_019dx model, all black/red ports
