Is there a way to test the transfer speed of a firewire connection?
The reason is that I've bought a externall HDD with FW 800 connection.
It proclaims itself to have a sustained transfer rate of 73MB/sec.
It would give me roughly 4.4 GB/min, right?
Last night a did the first backup from my mbp to the ext disk.
I'm not sure, but as far as I could notice, transfer rates were about 2 GB/min...
What should I expect from this kind of connection?
