Advertisements Yesterday I moved my apps to a USB 3.0 32GB Flash drive i had laying around. I have it connected to the USB-C port using a USB-C to USB A adapter. My tivo stream 4k recognized the flash drive and I was able to format the drive successfully as device storage. But I noticed once I moved my apps to the external flash drive, the apps ran very slow and even caused some to crash. Examples of apps that ran noticeably slower were Fubo tv, youtube tv and reelgood apps. I moved these apps back to my internal storage and they were back to a snappier speed like before. My question is, is anyone experiencing this problem? Will buying a newer flash drive fix the speed of running apps on external storage? I don't want to go through the hassle of purchasing several usb flash drives to test if I'm going to get the same results. EDIT: My flash drive is actually a 3.1 not a 3.0 usb drive, could this be the issue?
