System Requirements

• Pentium or 100% compatible computers


• Supported Operating Systems: Microsoft Windows 7 / Vista / 2003 / XP / 2000 (32bit)
• USB 2.0 interface
• Transcend StoreJet® external hard drive
• Administrator rights required for Windows 2003 / 2000 / XP installation

Software Installation
Note: TurboHDD USB installation requires you to log in as an administrator on Windows 2003/ XP/2000
computers.

Instructions:

1. Plug the StoreJet® external hard


drive into your computer.

2. Open the “TurboHDD USB” folder


on the StoreJet drive and
double-click Setup.exe.

3. The setup wizard will appear.


Read and agree to the agreement
before installing.

4. Click "Options" in the bottom-left


corner of the window to change
the installation path. (default is
C:\Program Files\TurboHDDUsb)

5. Click Next to continue.

2
6. TurboHDD USB will begin
installing.

7. If you are using Windows Vista, a


blinking icon will appear on the
toolbar. Please click it.

(If your system is not Windows


Vista, please move on to step 9)

3
8. The User Account Control window
will open. Please click "Allow" to
continue.

9. Enter the TurboHDD USB


software serial number that came
with your StoreJet driver and
click Install.

(The TurboHDD USB serial


number is located on your
product Warranty Card.)

4
10. It may take a few moments for
the software to detect and
configure your StoreJet drive.

11. When instructed, briefly unplug


your StoreJet® drive, then plug it
back into the computer.

12. The TurboHDD USB software


interface will appear.

Installation is complete. Please see


the next section for instructions on
how to use TurboHDD USB

5
Switching to Turbo Mode
Instructions:

1. When TurboHDD USB is opened,


the current USB transfer mode
and information about your
StoreJet drive will be displayed.

2. By default, the software will set


the USB transfer mode to
"Turbo."

6
3. To switch between "Turbo" mode
and "Normal" mode, click the
hard disk icon.

4. In "Normal" mode, any files


copied to or from your StoreJet
drive will be transferred at the
standard USB speed.

5. If you click the icon of the hard


disk again, the StoreJet file
transfer speed will switch back to
"Turbo" mode.

7
"Turbo" mode increases transfer
efficiency for faster overall hard drive
performance.

"Normal" mode sets the StoreJet


transfer rate to common USB hard
drive speed.

®
Safely Removing the StoreJet Drive
Instructions:

1. Whether in Turbo or Normal


mode, your StoreJet® can be
easily and safely removed from
the computer through the
software interface.

2. Simply click the icon of USB


transfer cable to execute a safe
removal of your StoreJet® drive.

8
3. Click "Yes" to confirm.

4. The transfer cable icon will


change and the hard drive
information will disappear,
meaning your StoreJet® has been
safely removed.

5. You may now unplug your


StoreJet® from the computer.

6. If you want to run TurboHDD USB


again, please plug the StoreJet®
back into your computer.

time by simply right-clicking its icon
on the Windows taskbar (notification
area).

Benchmarking

• There are two types of benchmarking tools for testing the transfer efficiency of a hard drive.
The first type is based on low level read/write sectors, such as HD-Tune and HD-Tach. These
programs work on a similar testing principle, and their the tested read/write block value can be
set by the user in the disparity range of 4K-64K. These types of testing tools are suitable for
testing the read/write rate of a hard disk based on mechanical attributes.

• The other method of testing hard drive speed is based on moving (reading and then writing)
files. Benchmark utilities that use this method include HDbench, FDDbench, CrystalDiskMark
and ATTO. Unlike HD-Tune and HD-Tach, the size of read/write block is decided by the
operating system. This type of benchmarking is more practical, as most end-users often
perform basic file copying, moving, creating, and deleting. Consequently, test results
obtained from these types of software tools are closer to what a user might experience in
actual usage, and are more representative of real-world interface bandwidth.

53% Faster Benchmark Results

Test Setup:
Platform
CPU AMD Phenom X3 8450 (2.1GHz)
Motherboard GA-MA78G-DS3H
RAM DDR2 800MHz 2GB
Hard Drive ST3250410AS 250GB SATA
System Software & Drivers
Operating System Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2
Software Application TurboHDD USB Ver 1.XX.XX
External Enclosure TSXXSJXXX

Benchmark Software
CrystalDiskMark Version: 2.1
Data Size: 500MB

Results:

13
• Based on sequential read of 500MB of data, the read speed when using TurboHDD USB is
53.1% faster than a common USB hard drive (TurboHDD disabled).
• Based on sequential write of 500MB of data, the write performance of TurboHDD USB is 23.7%
faster than a common USB drive(TurboHDD disabled).
• Note: Benchmark results can vary greatly depending on the testing environment used, as well
as many different factors such as the speed of the system disk (usually faster than the USB
hard disk), the USB host controller (AMD is faster than Intel), USB 1.1 vs. USB2.0, multi-core
vs. single core processing, and more.
