[qkminaot] Terabyte NTFS format over USB 2.0

Formatting a 1 terabyte external hard drive connected over USB 2.0 using mkfs.ntfs (omitting the -Q option), Celeron 900 processor, took 9 hours and 54 minutes.  28 megabytes per second, well in line with reports that USB 2 has a real world maximum of about 30 megabytes per second (out of 60 theoretical).
