Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm not sure if this is a limitation of ubuntu, or if there is some setting I don't have enabled.

When I copy files to my NTFS usb stick, I get around 1.5MB/s. If I format it to FAT I get 30MB/s. If I mount the NTFS formated stick on a Windows virtualbox running inside ubuntu I also got 30MB/s. It's a 64GB USB3.0 stick that I want to use with windows and ubuntu computers, and I want file sizes over 4GB.

Am I stuck using windows in virtual box to transfer files?
