USB Drive access under Windows XP

Wow, I've just increased the speed of my USB drive dramatically.
All I did was to change the Policy to use "Optimize for performance" rather than "Optimize for quick removal". The downside is that, to be safe, I have to do the whole "Safely Remove Hardware" dance. A small price to pay, I think.
Anyway, this option is in Computer Managerment->Device Manager->Disk Drives->(Your USB drive here). Right click, select the "Policies" tab and click ok. Bingo. Transfering data to and from the USB drive is now increased to something reasonable.
You don't care, do you?
