Hey guys,

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?

tks!
