MFSCOPY in WinMFS taking days! Still running.
I started WinMFS on Monday at 12:3pm and I am running MFSCOPY on a 750gb drive to a 1tb drive. Today is Wednesday and it's still running - 48 hours now! The progress bar is moving, but only by one square in several hours. It says it's copying the MFS Media partitions. Is it normal for it to take this long???
- Very fast i7 pc with 6gb ram, Win 7 Pro
- Source drive Seagate SATA DB35 750 gb.
- Target drive WD SATA 1tb (also got same very slow transfer using a Seagate drive as target.)
- Latest available WinMFS .9 I think.
How are the drives connected? It should take long for WinMFS to complete. You have a problem.
Straight forward SATA to SATA. winMfs found the drives fine and progress bar showed all the other partitions being copied over ok. It's slow during coping of the mfs media partition.

No problem, I didn't realize how popular this feature was.
