I'm doing some 1 Terabyte backups to external USB drives.
In the past I've heard comments that:
the limiting factor is really the USB speed
some brand drives are way faster than others
the most important thing is: are you copying big contiguous files or massive numbers of little tiny files
Anybody have an estimate on how long a 1 TB copy would take?
