Is there a way to check the Rpm of a harddrive?

I don't think the speed of the drive matters since it's connected via USB. That's probably what's slowing you down. But if it's external and laptop-sized, it's likely 5400 RPM.


You think i can lose the usb adapter and just hook it up with a sata cable?

Will that help any?

It's more likely for the USB adapter to be the issue rather than the HDD.


Yea im starting to agree.

Yup. Might need an adapter to screw it in proper though.

As far as that..I might just hook it up, and set it on top of one of my other harddrives.

I don't move my tower around that often anyways
