I have measured the transfer on the following disk to be 2.75MB/s:
iManufacturer 2 Seagate iProduct 3 BUP Slim SL
The interface is USB2 so it should be fastered than that:
hdparm -W1 /dev/sdd mount /dev/sdd1 -o data=writeback,barrier=0 /mnt/c
I'm copying Debian 7 VM files to it so there's quite a number of small files. Still.
What are the reasons for this? How do I improve on that?
Host OS: Debian 7.11.
