    for20,

    Not to worry, your buffers are your drive's shock absorbers.

    Just like the family car couldn't be driven very far without some form of shocks to even out the road the transfer of data needs to be made smooth so that your backup has an even picture and audio transfer.

    The more the jumps (like your 0 to 100) the more it's necessary to take it easy on the drive. Remember, a "jumping " buffer is a happy buffer.

    Relax, everything is fine in Whoville -

    Pete
