    I've been playing with an external enclosure with a 300 gig sata drive

    ICY BOX 3.5 SATA - USB & SATA IB-360STUS-B-BL

    Using my old p4 machine Acronis makes a system image in about 4 minutes and restores in 10

    Using a Samsung laptop Acronus makes a system image in about 6 minutes and takes i hour 20 mins to restore.

    Obviously it is much quicker to copy the image to a partition and then restore.


    I have no practical worries here - this is only one of a number of external drives BUT this is the only one to takes so long with the laptop


    Question - whta is the cause of this problem ? Is it down to drivers ? igf so why is it ok with one machine and not another.

    any thoughts ?

    What file size is the image file created from the laptop?

    On the laptop, if you copy the image from the ICY BOX to the internal drive, how long does it take?

    How long does it take to validate the image from Windows when the image is on the ICY BOX? (Assuming you have TI installed on the laptop.)

    desk machine C: about 6 gig lap top 8 gig difference not worth talking about.
    copy from icy box to laptop 6 - 10 mins can't be precise then say 10 to 15 max to restore. from a practical point of view copying and then restoring is much much quicker.

    validate - sorry I haven't bothered to validate since version 6. have estimated
    well over a thousand images made and none failed when restored.

    Hello all,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup software

    Long View, could you please clarify if you're creating and restoring the image within Windows or Rescue mode (both for your desktop and laptop computers)?

    Thank you.

    Hello all,

    If you're restoring system image within Windows you would need to reboot in order to perform this operation and most probably at this mode something like USB 2.0 is not supported.

    Please create Acronis Report (with USB drive attached) and Linux system information (sysinfo.txt) as it is described in Acronis Help Post, then submit a request for technical support. Attach all the collected files and detailed information to your request and the link to this thread. We will investigate this issue.

    Thank you.
