    USB 3 - Windows check if UASP enabled

    Hi there

    Is it possible to find out in Windows if UASP on USB 3 ports are enabled -- On Linux it's easy - simply type lsusb and if a device shows driver=UAS anywhere then it's working

    Any way in Windows to see if it's enabled.

    The reason is that when using external USB3 HDD enclosures - especially multi-bay ones in JBOD type configurations the data transfer speed on USB3 is considerably enhanced --faster I/O is never a bad thing.
