USB 2.0 vs. USB 3.0
FYI…I ran some simple backup time tests. I backed up 127Gb of data from an internal 7200 RPM SATA drive using standard compression. My goal was to gauge backup times between USB 2.0 vs. USB 3.0.
Backup to: USB 2.0 (7200 RPM Iomega eGO) = 48 minutes
Backup to: Internal SATA drive (7200 RPM Seagate Barracuda) = 38 Minutes
Backup to: USB 3.0 (7200 RPM Seagate Barracuda) = 24 minutes
Backup to: RAID 0 (7200 RPM Seagate Barracuda eSATA x 4) = 24 minutes
