Plugable Windows Transfer Cable compatibility

I am looking to purchase
Plugable Windows Transfer Cable…will this work between 1 computer with 2.0 USB ports with Windows 7 and the other has 3.0 USB ports with Windows 10?

Hello Thomas,

Thanks for reaching out to us on our forums! The Plugable Windows Transfer Cable will indeed work when connected to a USB 2.0 port on one computer and a USB 3.0 port on the other. I don’t suspect you’ll encounter many issues, but the transfer might take a little longer than if both computers had USB 3.0 ports (due to the cable relying on USB 2.0 speeds for the transfer).

Hope this information helps, but if you have any further questions please let me know. We’re here to help!
