The time it took for you to post the question, and wait for answers to come (in a weekend no less). You should already be done with copying even in Explorer.
Yes, if it was regular data.
I have mostly stock market data called tick data.
Just one folder of tick data ( approximately 18 GB ) takes good 25 minutes to Copy-Paste manually.
I have over 50 such folders plus other Video files. So there you go if it makes any sense.
Now clonning the same amount of data using Acronis takes about 4 hours which I can start at night before I go to bed & drive will be ready in the morning.
I don't know how else to explain.
