I heard that! To be honest, the last time this deal came up I bought in. 3 TB external. I think it was a seagate anyways. I used it in my moving scheme I cooked up. I need to tell you guys about that in a podcast.

Moving scheme? That sounds like a write up as I too just moved about 4TB of data from Korea to the US via a VPN. Interesting...

4TB over VPN? Yikes, for real? That must have taken some time and could be at least a forum topic.

Yea, it took the better part of six weeks to complete but I did learn a few best practices by utilizing WHS Download, AllwaySync, and TerraCopy.

I remember someone (thought it was Joe Miner) mentioning his poor performing USB 3 drives in 2008R2, and how they were functioning much better in Server 2012. FWIW, the Seagate is quite good in 2008R2 on USB3 in my box. 164MB read, 142MB write. I have the USB 2 and USB 3 speed test results below.

 

 

USB 2 speeds:

Sequential Read : 34.742 MB/s

Sequential Write : 32.375 MB/s

Random Read 512KB : 24.557 MB/s

Random Write 512KB : 31.821 MB/s

Random Read 4KB (QD=1) : 0.647 MB/s [ 158.0 IOPS]

Random Write 4KB (QD=1) : 1.424 MB/s [ 347.7 IOPS]

Random Read 4KB (QD=32) : 0.668 MB/s [ 163.2 IOPS]
