I needed to do an image restore a few days ago (and thankfully it worked!..Thanks Acronis). I chose (1) verify Archive, (2) restore and (3) verify restored files. The entire job took about 40 minutes. BUT ACRONIS CONTINUED TO ESTIMATE 3 DAYS TO COMPLETE THE JOB! I recently did a "verify archive". The verification took about 13 minutes, basically as long as the backup. But the time estimates was 5 minutes. Acronis. Can't you do better than this?
