Magnetic disk capacities have grown over the last decades by a factor of at least ten thousand. While the minicomputer disk drives of the late eighties could only store 600 MB of data , 8TB or 10TB disk drives are common today. The same is not true for disk transfer rates: they are just one hundred times higher than those of the late eighties. As a result, copying the entire contents of a disk will take now considerably more time than thirty or forty years ago.
