Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I have been exclusively using ubuntu so I hadn't previously noticed this but transferring files/folders across usb 2 and 3 is a lot slower on ubuntu.

My external drive is exfat, and using usb 3 on windows I get transfer rates of 95 MB/sec and on ubuntu it is only about 20-25.

Is there something wrong with my setup or is it that the drivers aren't very good for exfat yet?

I am using fuse-exfat as described in this post: Is there a simple way to add exFAT support?

Thanks for your help
