Post the exact system you are using OR the exact motherboard.
Generally [however not always] usb3 ports are blue.

Well, it is pretty simple. Just look at the computer. It is going to have a brand ie dell, hp, whatever AND a model# ie dell optiplex 123 or something similar. If it is a dell, it will also have a service tag# Post that as well.

From what I can find, you have 1 usb3 port and the others are usb2. If you look carefully at the single port, it should have a different color that the other three.

USB3 is faster IF the device plugged into the port is usb3. If it is usb2, then it will only run at usb2 speed.
As for your pic, you can try deleting all partitions in disk management OR you can try to clean the drive from the command prompt.
