Hi, I am trying to backup my System-Disk, which is on partition C, with 20GB allocated to it. The problem I am facing is the speed. With 20GB partiotn, and less than 10GB info on it, it takes more time then stated when going through wizard, which says roughly 10-15 mins with Normal option. First time I tried backing up, I waited for 2 hours, and the backup status was showing that less than 10% completed. Then once I left it for all night, after 7-8 hours, it wasn't even half way through. I reinstalled the WinXP eventually, and tried again, but the problem still persists. Can't understand what is wrong. I am not using RAID, Dynamic Disks or some encryption on this particular partition, nor where backing up, and WinXP is the only OS installed on this hard-drive. I tried to backup on same HDD (which has C - System, D - DATA, E - Paging) and on 2nd HDD (F - DATA_2). I needed to hold backups on DVD, so tried splitting images 2GB each, and also tried without this feature. Basically I have tried most of the options. My System Specs are: AMD A64 3500+ Asus A8V Deluxe rev.1.02 1GB OCZ DDR500 Dual Channel 200GB + 120GB SATA Maxtor Diamond MaxPlus 10 Drives (Both HDDs are installed on VIA SATA Controller) LiteON DVD-RW 832S WinXP Pro SP2 Acronis TrueImage Workstation 8 build 935 NO Overclocking on system All latest drivers are installed Looking forward for a reply from Acronis Tech Staff, and also from other guys, who had such prob, or might give some suggestions.
