Yeah, I'm not planning on moving it. I was just curious if despite USB having a higher data transfer rate than a 100mbps line if the fact it's going network-USB-hdd instead of network-HDD if the addition of USB in the middle would cause some sort of additional bottleneck.
It was just one of those weird things that popped into my head and I figured I'd ask about. Thanks much!
