Esata Support

I there any way to at SATA support to the WBFS Manager? Whenever I clone a drive USB to USB it takes about 16 hours.(I have 760GB of games on the drive.) So I got a 1.5TB drive for my PC to store them from cloning. I thought that it would be quite a bit faster to clone a drive. I was wrong, using WBFS Manager transfering from SATA to an ESATA drive still takes 16 hours. Anyone have any suggestions for this?

Use a faster/newer computer.

The data is read from the source-drive, into the computers buffers, to the target-drive.

The slow transfer is mainly caused by the speed of your data busses in your computer.

Faster/newer computers have often faster data busses.

Although 760GB is a lot to process...

This is a brand new PC with a 1066 bus. Will there be any updates coming with on the fly transfers?

Well even with the slow transfer, It seems that all of my games were corrupted when the drive was cloned. If I try to add them to a USB drive, it says the transfer was successful, but the usb drive is still empty.
