Slow 32gb Voyager?


Recommended Posts

Just received a 32gb Voyager Monday and it seems to be running a little slow... After formatting to NTFS, sustained write speeds for large files (~4 GB) is around 3 Mbps whereas write speed for smaller files (~30mb) is almost instantaneous. I contacted support and they recommended compressing large folders into zip folders, which admittedly improved the write speed a lot, but the compression took almost as long as the write did before.


I've run 3 tests in HDbench and the average write speed is about 5 Mbps, with read speed of about 25 or 26 Mbps. Is this normal?

Please try to format the drive from a command prompt with this syntax:

Format (X:) /FS:FAT32 /U (X=the drive letter assigned to the Flash Voyager) then try the HDBENCH v3.40 Beta 6 to test the performance. And please do a full format of the drive before you run the test and set it to 100 MB file size.

The Transfer speeds should write at about 8-14 MBps and Read at about 24-30 MBps.
