So I finally got around to upgrade my hardware in my Dreambox from an old Maxtor 40GB harddisk to a nice and smooth Samsung Spinpoint HD400LD.
So on big effort is to backup all the movies from the in the meantime completely stuffed Maxtor. So the easiest way was to attach my notebook to the box (via a crosslink-cable) and copy everything to my harddisk.
Next step (after the Spinpoint was built in), was to “recover” all the data back to the new disk. Unfortunatly I had to experience a major performance-decrease. While I got about 7MB/s reading from the box, I only get about 4,3MB/s writing to the box … 🙁
Well, it turns out, that is behavior is be design 🙁 and is not subject to change. So I will have to spend a night or so copying everything to the box …
