I don't have an answer for you about ZTree copying that many files all in one operation. Perhaps it is taking a long time simply because the drive is failing and it has to retry every read 10 times or more.

When I want to clone a full drive I use robocopy.exe. Once you figure out all the command line options, it works very well. An advantage to robocopy.exe is that it's multi-threaded and will start several file copy operations simultaneously. I believe ZTree will do it single-threaded which might result in more tightly packed, non-fragmented files, but will take longer.
