Let's say I've ten external hard disk drives that I want linked to 1 PC. I wanna ask whether it is okay to use a USB hub for all of them. Are file transfers going to be as fast as a direct connection to laptop computer? How many external drives can I activate simultaneously utilizing a hub? - I will not do a drive to External Drive file transfer while using the hub. - When I decided to transfer files from an External Drive to another one, I'll copy it first into my PC before passing it on to the other one.
