It depends on the amount of data that needs to be transferred over to the external hard drive. If there are many GB of information it could take many hours.To make sure it keeps transferring uninterrupted I would recommend changing your Power settings so the computer doesn't go to into sleep mode or shut off the hard drives from being in an idle state.
