Trust me, data transfer through eSATA is very fast.
I had gave up using external hard disk with small GB. Two of my Seagate 320 external hard disk had crashed within months of usage. I don't trust them for backup purpose. Anyone have a electric saw for me to torture them?
Now I just want to clone my current seagate Hard disk to WD Raptor. Currently, strange sounds started to pop out which worries me. Of course, the hard disk is around 1 year old running 24/7.
