I have a USB 2.0 enclosure and a USB 3.0 enclosure. I want to transfer large files from one to the other very often.
Should I put the source drive in the 3.0, or the 2.0? Theoretically, IF each enclosure has the same write speed as it's read speed, it wouldn't matter right? That way I see it, the 2.0 should become the bottle neck either way.
However in the real world I'm sure it's different.
The 3.0 I've observed at about 90MB/s Write and 100MB/s Read.
The 2.0 I've observed at about 20MB/s Write and 30MB/s Read.
So I'm thinking it would make sense to use the 2.0 for reading and the 3.0 for writing, as 30MB/s will become the bottleneck. Can anyone correct me?
