Customer Question

I have a Samsung STORY 2 TB External Hard Drive, which I have had for about four years, approximately. I need to know if it is a USB***** The computer that I have is USB 2, so I don't have an easy way of telling if it is USB 3. Is there some test that I can do from my computer to check to see if it is a USB 3 drive? Here are some photos. Thank you for your assistance. Paul.
