Hi, Long time reader. Searched the forums but haven't seen an answer to my problem. Recently changed over to an AMD 64 3200+ machine with 3GB ram Xp Pro SP3 with Ide main drive. Backup to a Samsung 750GB Sata external drive via Dock which takes USB & eSata. Fresh install of Xp & ATI 2009. Used ATI10 & 11 previously on another machine. Backing up to USB seems to run ok, but trying the same via eSata (including direct to sata port) turns out to be incredibly slow process. Much slower than Usb. Initially I had a driver problem which only gave me 10MB/s, (Usb was abt 30MB) however, this has been updated and using HDtune I get a consistent 80MB/s+. I was hoping for much greater speeds, not incredibly slow speeds. Any suggestions please.
