The last time I tried using btrfs over USB, my transfer failed, so I switched to esata, and it has been fine.

But sata hot plug doesn't work on my new machine even though it's enabled, so I'm trying btrfs over USB again.

I'm trusting btrfs to fail if there are any errors.


It could have been faulty hardware last time, and nothing to do with the fact that it was usb. I'm using a different dock now.
