    This is 2 partitions on one physical drive.

    Yes, that may well be faster.

    Drive 1 = 2 partitions, C & D
    Drive 2 = 1 partition, E

    Transferring data from C to D means the same drive heads are reading and writing.
    Transferring from C to E means the heads on C are merely reading, and the heads on E are merely writing.
  2. Is thr anythin I can do to speed it up? Even between 2 physical drives the speed is only 70-100 tht is not fast enough coz the rates usually are much faster around 140-160 I guess...
