How To Speed Up Your USB Pen drive Data Transfer.

we generally use USB 2.0 interface for tranferring data from one device to other. USB 3.0 is also available which gives super speed of 625Mbps (theoretically) but thay are not so popular. USB 2.0 is very popular and all the computer systems which are manufactured after year 2000 are bundled with USB 2.0. USB 2.0 is categorized in Hi-Speed interface for data transfer. They gives data transfer speed of up to 35Mbps (theoretically).
