none i know of except new hardware ,file transfer speed is controlled by the speed of the computers CPU and harddrive and and the speed of the connection between the computer and the external device ,the external device[usually usb 2.0] being the one that slows it all down . excample =High-Speed USB 2.0, which operates at 480 Mbps. and the new usb3=SuperSpeed USB 3.0 operates at 5 Gbps,only found on newer motherboard .

I assume you have multiple file adding up to 20 gig ,so might i suggest you separate them and only move a few gigs [2-3 gig ]at a time copy

yes a 3.0 will plug into the same port as the 2.0 but will only be as fast as the 2.0
when it comes to 3.0 and 2.0 ,internal connection of the 3.0 plug, will not plug into where the 2.0 plugs on the motherboard ,the motherboard must be 3.0 compatible and have connection for it ..
