Hello and Happy Holidays! What took 2 hours on my XP machine with 3 gb RAM with PowerQuest DriveImage 7 took me over 15 hours with B&R. Using: Paragon Backup & Recovery™, version 10.0.15.12802 (19.01.11 ) (Advanced) Free So I tried it on my new Windows 7 machine with an AMD 6 core and using 16Gb RAM and it still took over 15 hours to BU 170Gb. I tested it on 4 machines, two older XP boxes and 2 new, fast win7 PCs with consistent results. Too bad, I like the interface and the people seem nice Oh, I made a full backup then changed 1 text file and added 1 text file to test the differential backup, and it took 3 + hours. This is impracticable for a working machine. Any fast BU applications that you can recommend? Thanks!
