a) NTFS is running over fuse and is not so efficient
b) how is the disk connected? USB is simply slow

normally i would do this on a eSATA with ext4 or if possible on
an internal disk and after the source machine is up again you
have all time of the world to bring the data on whatever medium

the same for init mysql-replications
1. local rsync while service is up
2. service stop
3. local rsync the get the differences
4. service start
5. now you are up and have a consistent backup
