Updating usb drives
To rule this out as the cause of your USB woes, just stop Windows from ‘managing’ power to your USB controllers and devices: Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it.
You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.
Follow all the on-screen prompts until you see a message saying Installing Windows 10.
As soon as your computer restarts, remove the USB drive then follow the remaining prompts to complete the installation.
If you can't install major Windows 10 updates (such as the Creators Update) directly onto your PC - either because you don't have space for the large file, or because you're encountering errors in the installation process - then it's possible to install Windows 10 updates from a USB drive or from an SD memory card inserted into the card reader slot.
That’s why we’re committed to continuing our Lifetime Warranty on all flash drives for you and your clients.
You’ll then need to wait while the Windows 10 update downloads, which can take a fair while, depending on your internet connection.
When finished, navigate to the USB drive and double-click to begin the Windows 10 upgrade process.
Following our extensive testing, we are proud and confident to say our new USB 3.0 drives will consistently and reliably copy an 8GB folder in /- 7 minutes.
This is compared to /- 30 minutes with a 2.0 drive, equating to real-world 3.0 speeds of 20MB/s or greater.
