I've been using Partition Director (or one of it's earlier names) for years, and I've never had a partition copy from one disk to an unallocated area of a second disk take more than 3 minutes. But NOW it's taking HOURS! Both disks are Western Digital. The origin disk (disk 1) is a 74GB Raptor 10K RPM SATA 150, and the destination disk is a 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 300 drive. The partition is 16 GB in size. It says the process will take just short of two hours. Why is it suddenly taking hours when it used to take minutes? What's going on? How long does a partition copy take in your experience?
