I have a LinkStation Pro 500GB (LS-500GL). I have a new Western Digital 1TB Elements hard drive attached to it with a USB cable. It's formatted in XFS.

 

I have about 216GB of data on the LinkStation. It takes about 12 to 14 hours to run a Overwrite Backup (Differential).

 

That seems slow.

 

Is that the speed I should expect?

 

Thanks.

With this older unit thats about as fast as its going to be. It sound like its about 5 mb/s.

The V series of Linkstations look they are coming out soon. That would be faster replacement for your old Linkstation
