Windows 10: Copy Files from Hard Drive to SD Card - Painfully Slow Transfer
Copy Files from Hard Drive to SD Card - Painfully Slow Transfer
I am in the process of transferring files from my laptop's hard drive to a 256 GB SD card in the laptop's card reader slot. The transfer started quickly but then it slowed down drastically and has stayed down since. I've looked at some similar posts and tried a few of the fixes that worked for others but none of them have worked for me and I'm still transferring at an incredibly slow pace.
I should note that I'm transferring music files from my computer to the SD card. I have about 50 GB that I would like to put on the card but it would take me a week at the rate it's going now.
Anyone have any suggestions?
SD cards are usually always painfully slow nothing you can do about it unless you spend about 10 times the price and get the faster ones.
From what I remember the fastest I have gotten is around 8 MB/s on the cheaper type, I have never used the more expensive ones.
Here are the speed class marks.
Note: You probably have a class 10
I have SD cards labelled as Class 10 U-I 45 MB/s, under testing with small files I get a writing speed of 18 MB/s. Thus meeting the min spec of such cards.
I won't buy anything slower than that, or from dubious suppliers.
Also worth checking cheap Cards for capacity fakes, I use H2testw 1.4
For your amount of data on my Cards it would take roughly ~60 min to write.
Can you copy program files over to an external hard drive? And copy them back onto your hard drive after installing Windows 10 pro? Or do you have to install all the programs again? If so is there any software that would do it for you?
I just checked that my hard drive is failing. Fortunately, I can still use it at this moment and backed up everything, but there's one thing I want to back up which I don't know how to. If I were to buy a new hard drive, is there a way I could use...
I found an old hard drive which I want to format, not before I transfer all the photos there,
It's just that it's so old I wanted to know if there's a faster way than to search for them.
Maybe there's a way to find all images files (jpeg, png) and...
