Its the time it will take over USB2 which is the problem for me,
in the past when i had a usb2 external drive,
i used to take it apart and plug it direct onto the motherboard so the transfer only took half the time,
i dont advice this,
as it will void your warranty....
for a 40gb file i find it to be faster if i sent 5-10gb at a time rather then the whole 40gb at one time...
