I don’t know enough about computers to understand all the technical posts here other than the Extreme USB 3.0 64 GB is junk when it comes to Windows 7 and may be junk no matter what.
I have a San Disk Cruzer Micro 8 GB fhash drive I use for back-up. I back-up several times a day by copying files from the C drive to the F drive. When I change a name of a file I change the name in the F drive also. This allows me to keep the names current on both drives and I do’t have any “old file clutter” on my F drive to cause confusion. My F drive and my C drive are real time current except for the document I’m working on that moment. Makes sense to me.
My Cruzer Micro 8 GB fhash drive is several years old and worked fine with my previous computer (Windows Professional). I bought a new Dell XPS 14z with Windows 7 and continued using my San Disk Cruzer Micro 8 GB fhash drive as a backup just like before with no problem.
Then I saw the Extreme USB 3.0 64 GB. I bought it for the larger memory plus the faster transfer rate offered by the 3.0. But it doesn’t work. I would say the problem is me except my Cruzer Micro 8 GB fhash drive workes fine with my new Dell XPS 14z with Windows 7.
I don’t have time to figure this out. I don’t care about being screwed out of the money to buy the Extreme USB 3.0 64 GB. I just need a fhash drive with more memory and a higher transfer rate than my Cruzer Micro 8 GB fhash drive.
Can anyone here suggest what I buy that will work and offer more memory and a higher transfer rate than my Cruzer Micro 8 GB fhash drive and work with Windows 7?
My Dell XPS 14z with Windows 7 is 64 bit it that matters.
