    System Profile : P4 3.0 Ghtz w/1 gig RAM, XP PRO SP2

    Tasks : Backup & Restore >> Primary Partition C:\ [35 Gigs w/41% free space]

    Partittion was cleaned out of all Junk files and Defag.

    Took about close to 18 mins to Backup the Image.

    Took about close to 40 mins to Restore it back

    Are those "normal " speeds, I found the Restore is about at least 10 mins off, compared to V9.0f?

    You have not said where you are saving you backups or which methods you are using for making them and restoring. These factors can make a considerable difference.

    If you are making your backups within Windows to an internal or external drive 18 minutes would seem about right for your ~21GB. Even doing them from the restore CD would only be a tad slower.

    Restoring from an external drive could be par for the course as many such drives do not have the optimal drivers on the rescue CD.
    There are three possible solutions to speed things up.
    1. Create a BART PE CD With TI plug in.
    2.Get better drivers from customer support.
    3. Store your images on an internal drive.

    I chose method 3 above and my restores take barely half the creation time. Using the Bart CD was only slightly longer taking into account the longer time to live from that CD.

    Not to forget that diskfragment can also
    extend the time to make an image.
