[filmscanners] RE: Slightly OT: Hard Drive Speed



I have a USB 2.0 Buslink hard drive, and although the drive's internal speed
is faster than my internal EIDE drive (7200RPM vs 5200RPM, or thereabouts),
in action it is only about half as fast, according to my CD writing
software's data transfer tests. Although USB 2.0 is far faster than 1.1, it
is still a bottleneck (and it is certainly not 40 times faster than USB 1.1,
at least in terms of data transfer from an internal to the external drive).
I keep my "working" files on my internal drive, and keep files I will be
accessing less frequently on the external drive. Once I start to fill up the
external drive, I'll offload the even-less-frequently-used files to CDs.

If you get a USB drive, get the biggest one you can afford. It is amazingly
easy to generate a gigabyte of Photoshop files in a very short time.

Subject: [filmscanners] Slightly OT: Hard Drive Speed


In anticipation of obtaining Photoshop I was wondering about hard drive
speed.  In particular, I was wondering if getting a USB 2.0 card and an
external USB 2.0 Hard Drive would be significantly faster than working off
of
a partition on my internal EIDE drive.  Don't know nearly as much as you
folks about hardware, so I hope this question is not a ridiculous one.  I
guess you will let me know if it is :>)
