Hi. I've only had to restore a system a couple of times in the past 4 years but the recovery procedure did take a long time and what you're describing seems normal. One of the partitions I had to restore last contained 110gb worth of games and I'm sure it took over 10hrs.
At least (fingers crossed) it's not something you have to do on a regular basis.
Hope this helps.
