I am running Windows 7 Home Premium, my desktop specs are listed below.
Windows 7 64 Bit
HP Pavillion Elite m9340f
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700
NVIDIA GeForce 9500GS
I want to transfer the contents of one DVD that contains some clip art and fonts, (468,837 files, total 3.57 GB ) from my CD/DVD drive to my Free Agent external HDD.
When I copy and paste the files to a new folder on my external drive, and the transfer process begins, it tells me that the process will take eleven hours and thirty minutes.
Does that seem like a normal time span to transfer that 3.57 GB, or are there some settings that I should check in Device Manager?
I have done two other DVD's that took less time, (2Hrs, and 4Hrs), but they held more data,(6.21GB and 5.71GB).
Could these wild variations in transfer time be caused by what the actual files are, or as I asked should I check something in device manager?
