Default I hate bottlenecks

Purchased a 1TB external drive for (another) data backup. The transfer has been running for 8 hours now thanks to the bottleneck of USB 2.0.

You didn't use a external SATA connection? Shame, would have been done in no time.

Alas, for I have not the parts! I live in a Cowboy town where Office Depot is the only computer store and they look at me funny when I ask "Pacific questions".

Check NewEgg for PCI external SATA cards. Shop carefully. There's a lot of junk out there.

Going to upgrade the MoBo here soon and probably get a front panel with various trinkets and ports. Just annoying when trying to backup data.
