    36 000 MB = 36 TB if you're lucky (very good connection and large files)
    average value = 250 GB

    100Mbs X 60 seconds = 6000Mb X 360000Mb; divide this by 8 (Mb ->MB) and you get 45000MB, or 45GB.

    This is assuming you're actually achieving 100Mbs transfer speed.  I would run a test first over the connection your transferring from and see what kind of throughput you receive and then perform the math above for a rough calculation of expected total transfer.

    Sorry, it should read:  6000MB X 60(min) - 360000Mb

    These are ideal numbers. You never get that on a real network. You can always look for 60 - 85% of that, based on many vars : network and hardware, filetypes, filesizes, etc...
