Which Sandisk USB flash drives support UASP?

:smiley:   Hi Alexo,

_ Dear member of SanDisk Community, welcome. _

I will take advantage, to answer your two messages.

1-  [Is there a way to differentiate Between the two version? I want to make sure That I buy the “correct” one.]

Well, the fixed versions, were stopped making in mid-2013.
But, still in the trade, they have them in stock since before.
Therefore,  is simplest (as Ockham would say),  see the date have the package, and if it’s 2014, no problem.
Also, you can consult SanDisk/Support, for them to tell, the product code of those versions, and ready …

2- Regarding the second question: [Which Sandisk USB flash drives support UASP?]

I’ll tell you the following:

USB Attached SCSI Protocol (UASP), is a computer protocol, used to move data to and from USB storage devices such as hard drives, solid-state drives, and thumb drives.
UASP depends on the USB protocol, and uses the standard SCSI command set.
Use of UASP generally provided faster transfers, when compared to the older USB Mass Storage Bulk-Only Transfer (BOT) drivers.
UASP was introduced as part of the USB 3.0 standard, but can be used for slower USB 2.0 devices assuming compatible hardware, firmware and drivers are used.

Microsoft added native support, for UASP to Windows 8.
Drives supporting UASP load Uaspstor.sys instead of the older Usbstor.sys.
Windows 8 supports UASP by default over USB 2.0 as well.
UASP drivers and products, are certified by Microsoft, using the Windows Hardware Certification Kit.

Therefore, I conclude that the _ UFD with USB 3.0, _ from 2013 onwards,  have support UASP.
For more accuracy, you can take advantage the consultation with Sandisk/Support , for ask also,  the product codes, of these USB 3.0.
