Greetings, I have been using Acronis TI for some time to create Images to protect against HD failure or to save restore time when the kids trash my system. The point here is that I had been primarily creating images. Well I have done a couple of restores now and it takes 6+ hours to restore. I have an 80GB HD: 2 partitions (C/D); C has OS and maybe 6GB used while D has about 10GD used. I am creating the Image to a USB (2.0) and restoring from the same USB. It takes about 1 hour to create the Image but 6 to restore. Is this normal? I am using Acronis 10 Boot CD to do this. Comments? Sugestions?
