External HardDrive + Odroid C2, Increase Write speed

Unread post by passio » Tue Jan 08, 2019 10:17 pm

Hello, I connected my Hard drive on my Ordroid C2, when I download in torrent, I am limited to about 4-6Mo/s... I suppose it's because I have odroid C2 with USB 2.0. I Formated the disk on NTFS on Windows. Maybe NTFS is the problem... I used this quick solution after a missed solution to create a 4GB partion with Linux. I don't know how exFat or NTFS can affect the write speed in USB 2.0.

What is the best way to increase these performance, because my download speed is 40Mo/s.


Should I buy Odroid XU4 ?

Thank you

NTFS is the problem, you can add "big_writes" to the mount options in fstab.

But the best option is format the drive in the ext4 filesystem.
