External USB memory performance measurement?
What do you recommend as a good (free) tool for measuring transfer rates between your main HDD and external memory such as USB stick/flash/thumb drives?
I don't really trust the Microsoft software in this matter......................
If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

I just time the transfer.
Gotten to lazy to do any more than that.
But I have noticed, while using the new Lexar USB 3.0, 8 GB sticks things trasnsfer faster even on this old USB 2.0 laptop.

Here's a simple BATch file that will calculate elapsed times for you.
Replace that red line that starts with "ping" with your copy/xcopy command.
echo Start: %STARTTIME%
rem ---===[ Replace the next ping line with your code ]===---
ping -n 4 -w 1 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Finish: %ENDTIME%
rem -- Changing formatting for the start and end times --
for /F "tokens=1-4 delims=:.," %%a in ("%STARTTIME%") do (
set /A "start=(((%%a*60)+1%%b %% 100)*60+1%%c %% 100)*100+1%%d %% 100"
for /F "tokens=1-4 delims=:.," %%a in ("%ENDTIME%") do (
set /A "end=(((%%a*60)+1%%b %% 100)*60+1%%c %% 100)*100+1%%d %% 100"
rem -- Calculating elapsed time by subtracting values
set /A elapsed=end-start
rem -- Formating results for output
set /A hh=elapsed/(60*60*100), rest=elapsed%%(60*60*100), mm=rest/(60*100), rest%%=60*100, ss=rest/100, cc=rest%%100
if %hh% lss 10 set hh=0%hh%
if %mm% lss 10 set mm=0%mm%
if %ss% lss 10 set ss=0%ss%
if %cc% lss 10 set cc=0%cc%
echo Duration: %DURATION%
rem -- Clearing variables from environment
for %%x in (starttime endtime start end elapsed hh mm ss cc duration) do set %%x=
