When I'm on a road trip with the HMS Rainmaker I use a laptop for both a GPS and for checking out the forums.
I have a pretty big folder on the home system that has all of my 'GT stuff' on it, and just before a trip I've been copying it to a thumb drive so that I use it on the lappy.
With all the pictures, manuals, and vids, that folder has grown to 17 Gig! I've been keeping it on my 2nd drive which is a 1 TB Seagate HDD, but just recently copied it to a partition on my system drive which is a 1TB SSD.
I tried to copy it from the SSD to one of my older 2.0 USB flash drives, and even coming from the SSD it took 1HR and 45 Min. to copy.
Since I have a couple of 3.0 USB ports I decided to look for a 3.0 flash drive.
I was pleasantly surprised to see how much the 3.0 USB drives have dropped in price since I last looked at them and I bought two of these puppies:
Well sir talk about FAST! Copying that 17 Gb file from the SSD to the 3.0 drive took 9, yes, just 9 minutes
So, if any of you guys are copying large files or folders from your system to a flash drive and have 3.0 USB support on your computer I highly recommend them.
