I am copying files with from a laptop over to the external harddrive using eSATA connection.
I understand that the lowest speed for SATA is 1.5Gb/sec. Which translates to 187 MBs / sec. But the copy speed over to the hard drive is 6MBs / sec.
Any ideas on what could cause such slowness?
I disabled Mcafee Scan and saw no improvement.
