I'm just transferring about 1.6Tb across USB3.0 between two external drives. It's pretty slow at about 80Mb/s and will take 7hrs according to Windows.

Which got me thinking about the best we've got right now, which seems to be the Samsung T5 at 380MB/s, which would theoretically do it in about 1hr 10min. Which then got me thinking about those old 3.5" floppies, with a max of about 500kbps, so about 296 days.

Over 6,000X speed improvement. And I'm guessing there's a long, long way to go on this journey yet.

That's kinda cool
cheers
