You must have little info on it then.
I have LR catalogs since 2009 - 90g or so just with them

That's why you keep your catalogs and raw files on external drives.

I have fotofusion and it keeps it's albums/templates in their own directory.

Don't keep any kind of program data on your C: drive.

I have PS and LR presets and brushes and such - all has to be located and moved over.

Presets are text files, big deal.

I have over 800g of just customer images.

That's all?  Just starting out, are you?

The plan was to backup the computer then restore that data on the new unit. So that means copying the data TWICE.

You can't backup terrabytes of images like you back up word files.

Use Raid 1 and have your backup on the fly.  When the drives are full, store 1 in the antistatic bag somewhere and keep the other on hand to use in a dock.  If you want more than one backup, put a blank drive back in the raid device and let it do the work.
