I purchased ATI-9 and an external usb drive this weekend and set about to backup my desktop system. Everything loaded fine and appeared to run normal. I Started a full backup of 2 HD (60GB and 80GB) onto a 160 GB. I left it to run overnight. And it kept running and running and running... After 13 hours it completed the job. I can access the images and look at the files - everything seems to have worked. My question is about time - is it normal to take so long to complete a backup? Maybe I mis-read information on ATI-9 but I thought I could have an image done in 1- 3 hours not 13 hours.
