[ale] mounted filesystem becomes read-only



RE: USB 3

I've got a friend that bought a high-end machine (water cooled, lots
of cpu / ram, internal raid) for work.  (Can you say overkill?)

Anyway, it has USB 3 and he got a USB 3 carrier.

He said with large files he's getting close to 6GB / min copying in
big files to his raid, which is very good even for Sata/eSata.
