It should go faster than 5MB/sec, though. Seagate's specs say that drive should do 14MB/sec max. UW's top speed is 40MB/sec, so there shouldn't be any bottlenecks. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
