I was running no Antivirus and the MacBook was left idle.
I was using a LACIE USB 2.0 drive, capable of 1GB/min during writings. That is about 5 times the speed SuperDuper copies to it.
However I did not disable SpotLight for the external drive.
Can this cause problems and slowness?
Leaving the MacBook idle, how much can I expect from a FW drive? I mean from 4 MB/sec to 30 MB/sec or from 4 MB/sec to 6 MB/sec?
Is this because I was doing a clone and not an image?

Sorry for all the questions but its all new to me.
