Hello

Just got my 2TB Seagate barracuda 6gbs HDD.

I also have the same model in 500GB.

I'm currently transferring 300 GB of storage from the 500GB, onto the 2TB. The transfer speed is 80 mbps at the moment, But It first started at 110 mbps.. is this a normal speed??

Thanks

The data transfer rate is going to vary depending on where the data is storred on the HDD platter(s).

There will be a higher transfer rate from the outside edge as more data can be read with each spin.

Possibly your data is being transferred from the outside at the beginning and is now moving towards the centre.
