Does 5 - 10% of storage space on a USB flash drive need to remain free, as it does on a hard drive?
If there is something wrong with mine, tell me. Tell me if what I said is not why you have to leave free space on c drive??? how often do you have to defrag c drive when compared to others since c drive is always being used. come to think of it, a flash drive should never be defrag so there is no need to leave space. In fact defragging the flash drive will make it go bad faster because they have limited usage life. I am not the one giving bad advice.I tell you what Dan, you try it your way and I'll stick to mine, but don't give bad advice to other people.
This is not correct. Regardless of whether it is a system drive or not, a full hard disk is going to slow down compared to a hard disk with 20% or more free space. So yes, it does make a difference.It really does not make any difference for other drives whether it be harddrives or flash drives. .
