Raid 1 - 5Mil+ File Transfer

I am trying to move some data from one external hard drive(which I removed and installed the drive in the machine) onto a new raid 1 array. The transfer speeds seem very slow, but I am not sure as I have never moved this amount of files before.

I am trying to move 5,000,000+ 75-150kb files onto the array, the transfer speeds are about 5MB, is this normal? It seems slow as 160GB has taken 5hours...

Darn, any way to improve the speed?

Get a faster external HDD interface.  Looks like you are using USB2.  Go USB3 or eSATA and you'll be at least 10X faster.

(Or just leave the HDD inside the machine and copy via 1GigE ethernet to another computer. That also will be at least 10X faster.

It is in the machine, I removed it from the external.
