Yes, I stand corrected. Bad math.

.109722 GB is correct.

Maybe my math is wrong but I keep on coming up with .109GB

Yep; 109 megs.

79 GB in 12 minutes is equivalent to 395 GB per hour.

3600 seconds per hour.

395 GB divided by 3600 seconds is .1097222 GB per second aka 109.7222 MB per second

Haha, I was never good at math, but I think 109 mbps transfer rate is pretty good, certainly better than the 30 I've been getting.

30 MB per second is 108 GB per hour.

I get between 240 and 260 GB per hour when copying thousands of files INTERNALLY between 2 fast spinning hard drives. These files average about 6 MB in size. There is no USB port to navigate.

I'm not sure that your results are poor or even below average.

I get only about 11 GB per hour when copying thousands of files averaging 285k from a fast internal hard drive to a USB 3.0 thumb drive through a USB 3.0 port on my case.

As I said before, I wasn't sure if my expectations were too high or not. As long as using an external drive, as opposed to an internal drive, doesn't increase loading times by a lot, I will be okay.
