Unfortunately I bricked my "Western Digital MyBookLive 3TB" network hard drive. (Only had an ethernet port to access files via network)
After realising it was not going to work again, I decided to take it apart and order a USB 3.0 to SATA adapter to get my important files back.
Using a MacBook Air with 3.0 USB ports and using fuse-ext2 I am able to read access my files. I am trying to copy the files I need but there is a serious bottleneck somewhere.
Currently I am trying to copy 6GB of photos to my laptop, it has been copying for 5 hours and it has only copied 450MB so far with an estimated 2 days remaining. Here's an image
Could anyone explain anyway of making copying a bit faster, and what might be causing the snail pace transfers. I was able to copy my files over the network 100x faster (before it broke :P)!
Also I was reading somewhere that WD made the block size 64k instead of 4k... I must admit I have no idea what this means and how it might effect copying data.
