I'm transferring files from one drive's partition to another drive's partition. All are the same type, roughly same size of file, ~350MB. I'm just using VL5.1.1SOHO Konqueror's right-click Move To to move the files from one partiton to another.
The bummer is I'm only getting about a 10MB/s transfer rate, sometimes dipping to around 5-6MB/s, and very occasionally it jumps up to 50MB/s. Only the terminal, aterm, is open besides Konqueror.
My fstab for these files:
/dev/hdb2 /mnt/hdb2 reiserfs defaults,noexec,noauto,users,noatime 0 0 (WD3200JB)
/dev/sda3 /mnt/sda3 reiserfs defaults,noexec,noauto,users,noatime 0 0 (HD501LJ)
Anyone have any thought on what gives with the slow transfer rates? I'd expect to be running much higher that this, especially between to non-OS drives. VL5.1.1SOHO is running from hard drive (WD1200JB).
Edit: Moving files from hdb2/Folder1/ to sda3/Folder1/, ~15GB, crawled. But moving files from hdb2/Folder2/ to /sda3/Folder2/, ~20GB, is ~40-50MB/s. I'm stumped on this one.
