does anyone know approx how long it would take to backup 200gigs through usb 2.0?
That would take forever. Maybe at least a day? It depends. What do you have to backup 200 GB for?
Yeah, likely a day. For me it took about 4 hours for 60gb of data so... And it depends what you are transfering to.
Non-AC-Powered External Hard Drive
Ac-Powered External Hard Drive

Just today I took my Hitachi 2.0 and A/C powered external and backed up 60+ gigs in a little over an hour. Not the fastest speed, but certainly not going to take a full day to do 200 gigs.
I can backup 77 gb to a non AC powered hard drive in about an hour and a half.
Depends on the read speed of the harddrive.
Done, took me 3 hours, ac powered...
