I am trying to do my first ever full system backup using Norton Ghost 2003. I am backing up TO a new 250 Gb USB2 external HD. When I start the backup it says it estimated time is 40hrs to back up the 15gb backup file. Does this sound about right, seems very long to me. Is there any way to tell that the external drive in running at USB2 speed and not USB1 speed ?
Thanks Ventanas & Diemmess, I bought this 250Gb external as a safeguard against the event of OS failure. I was hoping to just restore if every thing went wrong in the future. I will try a few of your Ideas. Any other ideas on checking the drive is running at USB2 speed and not USB 1 speed are most welcome
