I recently attached a hard drive to my usb port & did a disk clone using ghost. When I do this from drive C to drive D internally, I get 500+ meg a minute transfer rate. On my usb i only got 50 meg a minute transfer rate. So, my backup took 3.5 hours instead of 15 minutes. I believe I have usb 2 & the usb 2 drivers, but can't determine this. Any ideas why the transfer is so slow? It doesn't matter whether i do it through dos or windows. Thanks

Did you ask its maker?

The boot disk I found Ghost makes didn't support USB 2.0 due to the still ongoing copyright issues.

What? I hear you say... Such is noted out there, such at

I wish they'd let it go.

Thank you. Not what I wanted to hear, but at least it puts me out of my misery.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
