Please, forgive the naive question, but I'm an absolute beginner to FastCopy and I'm quite perplexed. I'm copying 1.15 Tb of data, in 114 000 files, from a PC to an external hard disk, both equipped with usb 3.0 ports. The operation started 9 hours ago and still 5 are estimated required. It sounds strange: 16 hours to transfer 1.15 Tb seems really a lot, considering that:
- the external HD is a 4 Tb Western Digital Elements, void, and unused before
- the internal hard disk is a Western Digital SATA WD Blue 4 TB, having two partitions (only one is used in this transefer) and presumably totally defragmented (I have written on it just one time)
- the present transfer rate is 45 MiB/s, i.e. 5 Mb/s
I have read the topic https://superuser.com/questions/258105/ ... sata-drive
and understood that the bottle neck should be on the hard disk speed not on usb port, neverthless I'm still unsure about the normality of what I'm observing.
Also https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-speed ... per-second
suggest for a 5200 rpm HD a transfer rate grater of the observed.

What do you think about all that ?
