Hello, Recently installed Acronis for image backups. Got it working ok and did some backups. 29 gigs transfered in about 14 minutes which I thought was great. Tried several of them and it repeated. Today I tried one and it took about an hour. Tried again and it was going to take and hour so I cancled. Just tried again and it said it was going to take 3 hours so I cancled. Computer is exactly the same--no software or hardware changes. Running 2 Maxtors and they are in UDMA 6 mode. I uninstalled and re-installed the software--no change. I ran chkdsk /r--no change. It worked well once so I think it should work well again but I don't know what to do to try and correct this. Sure would like to get that original transfer speed back. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
