Speeds: WD 12TB Elements Desktop Hard Drive HDD, USB 3.0, Compatible with PC, Mac, PS4 & Xbox


• I just purchased this drive. I reformatted as Mac Extended Journaled and created 3 partitions.

• I use Carbon Clone for backup. I started a backup set for my 6TB drive (3.5TB used).

• 21 hours later only 2.5 TB has been backed up to the WD. This seems painfully slow - even for a first backup.

Question: Is this normal for this drive? Could reformatting and partitioning be a problem?

Asking for a friend. 🤓
