I know what time I started a transfer and what time it ended in minutes.  I know how big the file size is that I moved.  What is the excel formula for calculating speed per minute.

Start Time - 3:12 p.m.
End Time - 3:40 p.m.
Time Taken - 00:28
Transfer Rate - ?  
Size - 200GB

I'm looking for the formula to use in excel not the answer written.

(size of file x 1024) / time taken (minutes) = speed in MB per Minute
(200GB x 1024) / 28 = xx

A present, the format for minutes is being calculated as =TEXT(D9-C9, "hh:mm").  D9 representing start time and C9 representing stop.  How do I go about counting actual minutes as it being in the format of "hh:mm" does not calculate.  Furthermore, I can't delete hours without multiplying by 60 if converting to minutes

Have a read of this, I would recommend using the formula

=(D9-C9)*1440

This will give total minutes betweeen two times.  Incorporate that into the speed formula and you have the right result.

I believe the =(B2-A2)*1440 Total minutes between two times (295)  was the kicker.. thank you
