Slow USB speeds

Postby MadOp on Mon Dec 03, 2012 7:15 pm


I need to move around 250 GB of data stored in an USB ext3 filesystem and spread it into a set of 4/5 USB NTFS drives,
as I started I hit an apparently known issue in these scenarios, i.e.:

viewtopic.php?f=49&t=115657&p=646362&hilit=usb+transfer+speed#p646362 ... bug/500069

what remains unclear to me is:

- In my case, is this happening just because the target drive is an USB drive? Or because it is NTFS? Or because it is both USB + NTFS?

- Does anyone know for sure if this is improved in more recente kernels? and/of if there is any workaround available for Mint (I´m using the 12.04 based version)

Thanks in advance.
