I've almost hit my 500GB limit on my Macbook Pro. As such i've decided to move a bunch of files, movies, pictures, old documents, old installation files onto my 1TB external. All the files i wish to move have been put into one folder on my desktop and i've dragged these onto the external hard drive. I'm using 2.0 but the speeds i'm getting is really slow. Its showing that this 140GB folder will take 2 DAYS to transfer. I checked my activity monitor under utilities and the disk activity is showing my write speed as 4MB/sec? This is unusually slow for USB 2.0. Im wondering is there a solution to this extremely slow transfer speed?
