SLow NTFS read
I'm trying to transfer about 1.5TB from an NTFS disk to an EXT4 disk and the transfer is slow. The NTFS disk is slow full stop..
I presume I'm using NTFS-3G, (the OS is Linux MINT 15)
I really need to speed this up, it did about 100gb in 5/6 hours........
I can't find the kernel version of NTFS-3G. I wouldn't mind paying for it..........
Any other options......... Tweaks etc.
Is attaching the disk to a windows pc and FTP the file over out of the question?
On OS X, Paragon's NTFS driver is faster than NTFS-3G, so it might be worth trying on Linux?
