130 years to copy my data to external hard disk

I just started backing up my music to my new Seagate External hard disk and was amused to see that Windows explorer copy dialog box show that it needs 48822 days to complete the copy operation for around 9 GB of data, 48822 days equates to approximately 130 years.. I hope to be around to see that the data is copied successfully. I really don't know how they calculate the information about time needed to complete the copy operation, b'cos after a while the dialog box said that it needs only 2 hours to complete the operation.
