Hello all: I just downloaded Paragon Backup & Recovery Home Free last night for the first time. I have a 640GB system drive that I want to image. I put a brand new 1 TB drive in an external enclosure and connected it by eSATA. I partitioned the new drive using Paragon, and started an archive creation. So far, in 8 hours it has done 96GB of the archive, and claims another 16 hours to go. Is that normal? Would it really take 3 days to do a 2TB drive? I once used EASEUS Partition Manager to do a disk copy of the 640GB disk over eSATA, and it took about 2 1/2 hours. Finally, I assume I will need a boot CD after my archive is built, just in case of system drive failure. How/where do I get the ISO from to create the boot CD? Thanks a lot for helping a newb.
