Very Slow Restore

  laurie53 10:11 14 Aug 2007

I've just restored my active partition from an Acronis backup.

It took 5 hours! No big video files or anything, just the OS, I keep my apps and data on another partition, so just about 6 gig, which I would normally expect to take 20 minutes or so.

Anybody got any thoughts? To be honest it would have been quicker to do a clean install of Windows - with my apps on another partition I would just have had to reinstall a few drivers.

Are you backing up to an external HD, if so I have the same problem. I used to use Acronis Secure Zone and an internal slave drive on my old computer, and both were very quick (about 30 minutes) I bought a new computer (Laptop) which will not accept Secure Zone, so I have to use an External HD. If you can, use Acronis secure Zone which should cut down the restore time.I think it is the slow file transfer that is the cause.

No, backing up to internal drive, but a different partition.
