I use an external 7200 RPM 2 TB Seagate drive in a Sabrent enclosure connected to a USB 3 port. I can back up 115 GB to it in about 14 min. using Easeus Todo Backup Free. If you're copying to and from the same hard drive, you're going to do a lot of seeking that will slow things way down. You also want to be sure there's nothing else running like maybe a virus scan or Windows updates when you do your file transfer.

To add to wpgwpg's post. I would have your hard drive indexed. This will make the searching much faster. Obviously you don't want to start indexing during your major working hours on the machine. Start it up at night before bed. Should be done or close to done by the time you get home from work/school the next day depending on the drive size to index. Obviously don't have anything else running to speed this up.
