I bought and am formatting two new Sumsung 2TB drives in my Thermaltake dual slot dock via USB2.0 and they are at 68 percent after 19 hours. Is this unusual? I am doing a complete format rather than a quick format.
I wasn't going to say anything about eSATA because I didn't want you to feel bad about wasting time.
Also from what I understand, there is nothing wrong with doing a quick format to those new drives instead of a full format. Plenty of people swear that it is in fact better. I have not yet formed an opinion on that.
I used quick format on my first pair of Samsung 2TB drives and they have performed just fine. I read that a full format is better. Wish I had just did a QF on the new pair so that I could use them.
Thanks for being nice and not saying why in the world use USB2.0.
