USB2.0, Why is a LACIE 7200RPM drive faster than a Samsung 840PRO in an enclosure? Testing drives for backup
Confused. Backup up data. I thought SSD's were faster than spinning drives. I have a case where USB3 drives are connected to USB2 ports. The spinning 7200 RPM drive is faster than the SSD in the enclosure. Both drives are setup for performance in Device Manager. Connect to the USB3, the SSD is much faster but this is an old server and have not installed a USB3 card in it, yet. What am I missing? Is it the SSD enclosure is from Sabrent.
