Using TI9, latest build, on Dimension 4550, 2.4G, 1G Ram, 250G C: (~120G used) b/u to Maxtor Ext. 200G usb/firewire (USB as from bootCD TI9 could see firewire to write but not recover?). First tried to use SZ on ext and received corrupt MBR on verify (sadly had activated rec. mgr. at some point in time, been using for 2+yrs. started w/TI8, to internal, but needs have changed) so used MBR Autowrite to restore MBR and received successfull verify in windows but from bootcd was told Block Bitmap was corrupted. So, I removed SZ on external, ran chkdk /r, and defrag on both drives, and quick format on ext. Question is, I'm running b/u from bootcd (for least chance of corruption) to empty external usb (NO SZ) with verify and it says 9hrs remaining after 1.5 hours(started at 12)?? Used to take ~4 hrs in windows for initial full for ~120G, why so long?? If should take this long, can I abort and run overnight without causing issues? Actually did get a respone from techsupport in less than 24hrs, but I'd already done the suggested (chkdsk/r and eliminate SZ).
