rsnapshot, pci-sata adaptor, for some reason
seems quicker than ide (master ) > ide (slave)
with rsnapshot.

Well, duh! Only a single device can be active on an IDE channel at a time. So you read data from the master to a buffer, then write to the slave. It's a half-duplex operation. It'll always be faster to use two separate IDE channels (read from primary master, stream directly to secondary master), or any two separate I/O channels.
