    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.

    I backuped my 320GB laptop HDD into a 500GB External HDD within 2hours and 40minutes.

    The external was usb 2.0

    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.
