I have TI Home 2009, build 9646. I've created a task to make a backup every day, and retain for 7 days. The first full backup took 2 hours, no problem, I understand a full backup can take some time. The full backup is 120 Gb on a external USB drive. During 7 days backups are made rather fast, but after 7 days, the software starts to consolidate. Now my computer is busy for about 4 hours to make one backup and perform consolidation. and it looks lik it is doing this every day now. I want to make a daily backup, but this is almost unworkable when consolidation takes this long. A daily full backup is twice as fast! Is this normal, or do I have a problem? Thanks.
