I'm trying to manage images for a separate applications drive. I store the image for the application drive in a folder on my boot drive. I boot Vista, pick the image of the app I want to use, and tell ATI to restore the image to the app drive. It takes 3 - 4 minutes to make the backup, but 40 minutes to restore it. If anything, restores should be faster. Application drive is a 14GB Acard 9010 sata ram-disk. Boot disk & image store is a WD Velociraptor. I'm on Vista64 with x58 chipset. RAID, ACHI, and JMicron controllers are diabled. Both drives are on Intel ICH10 sata controllers. The problem seems to be in "restore partition". 99% of the time is spent there. The 2nd step, restoring the data is quick. I've done both sector level and 'just the data' images. It doesn't seem to matter.
