    Just like the title says, how long should it take to copy 50GB over a Wireless G connection?

    actually... I don't know-but firewire would be so much faster

    Are we talking about doing this over a LAN? I would say give it a go using SFTP through the program Transmit or Cyberduck. I'd say 4-6 hours.

    If you're doing this across the internet then I'd say don't bother, it'll take forever.

    ((50*1024*8) /54 )* 60 = 126 minutes.

    That's a theoretical maximum. In reality you're looking at a fair while longer than that.

    I'm talking just one computer to another on my network. I'm syncing my iTunes library over to an iMac being used as a homebrew :apple:TV.
