I fired off a "smart backup" on Windows 8.0 x64 just before lunch. Saving to external USB3.0 HD. Within seconds, the progress shot up to 50% complete with 1 minute 54 seconds to complete. Knowing no-way too good to be true, I went to lunch. Came back in an hour and the progress had only reached 65% with 5 minutes 52 seconds remaining. Clicked on cancel and waited another 3 minutes before giving up and killing the process with task manager. Will fire off another attempt before leaving tonight. Anyone else experiencing this?
