I have a w2k3 server with USB 1.0 ports. SUX. It has PCI-X slots so the only thing I could find for it was a firewire card. I am in the process of backing up and it is going to take 27 hours to backup 180 gigs at the current rate. In one hour it has only backed up 7 gigs of data.
At 400Mbits per second that should be 50 Megs a second x 60 = 300 megs per minute x 60 = 18 gigs per hour
It is taking nearly 3 times the amount of time it should take to abackup.
Any other backup solutions? Want to get away from tapes but it seems to be my best solution. My sdlt is doing 180 gigs in 11 hours but it is starting to flake out. Any good places to send it in for repair?
