  1. Hey,

    I don't know what read means. I transferred some file to and from a USB 3 thumb drive. Files transferred much faster from the thumb drive to a hard disk. Looking at the image it seems that read means transfer to the hard drive but that doesn't make sense to me because in my thought process the thumb drive isn't reading it's writing to hard drive. Could someone explain to me what I am failing to understand? Thanks

    The data (on the thumb drive) has to be read by the OS. The OS is writing what it read from the thumb drive to the hard drive.
