    • Rsnapshot and speed?

      So I just started using Rsnapshot to backup to an external USB3.0 4TB drive. The drive benchmarks at 40MB/s which seems a little low but that's fine. I started the Rsnapshot backup of 250GB and it's currently at 114GB after several hours. A drive that does 40MB/s should do it in an hour so I'm confused, is this normal or not.
    • What size of files? What kind of system? rsnapshot uses rsync to copy files.

      Please don't PM for support... Too many PMs!
    • An initial rsync snapshot takes time. Using a very slow external USB connected HDD it is even slower. But subsequent snapshots should be much faster when only modified files need to be copied.

      Perhaps you should investigate why the drive is so slow. Is it failing? Possibly get a new USB 3 case for it.
