I got True Image mainly so I could copy my hard drive (currently containing 133 GB of data) to a 250 GB WD Passport (USB) drive and have files immediately available and with me when I travel. But after 6 hours, it was only 14% of the way finished with a clone operation. Extrapolating, it looks like it would take 42 hours to clone the drive. I was able to copy the drive to a 160 GB Passport drive overnight using the same setup and USB port with Norton Ghost. But Ghost won't recognize the 250 GB drive, which is why I got True Image. True Image recognizes the drive, but the copy speed of around 56 MB/minute is prohibitively slow. I can't afford to disable my computer for over two days each time I want to make a copy. I'm using True Image 11, build 8053. Computer is a 2.4 GHz Pentium IV with 1 GB RAM, running up-to-date XP SP2. The USB port is 2.0, no hub. Is this normal copy speed for True Image?
