My working day usually consists of filming 4K video on location all day followed by an intensive media download each evening.
On a typical day I would have 2 x 256GB Cfast cards, 2 x 32 GB SD cards and 4 x 8 GB micro SD cards to transfer to 2 USB3 Backup drives (Seagate). I use a software transfer tool called Hedge, which takes the hassle out of cueing up and verifying these transfers.
At the moment I'm using an Asus UX303L laptop with 3 x USB ports (i7 processor with 8GB RAM) on Windows 10. It seems to take at lest 25mins to transfer each 256GB card.
I'm wondering if I would achieve faster transfer speeds with another system, i.e. a Macbook Pro with a USB-C port and a dock to accept the media card reader and external BU drives?
Filming days are long and intensive enough in themselves and anything I can do to minimise transfer time at the end of the day would help.
