    Hi,

    I just upgraded my MacbookPro system to 10.4.9. For some reason file transfer became REALLY REALLY slow all the sudden. I am making back-up to the external drive through USB. Any idea?? Please help!!

    Thanks,

    DA

    Use Firewire, its faster. Real world performance proves it.

    Windows is faster under USB though.

    Try repairing disk permissions, it is a general fix-all in Disk Utility :)
