Hi Support and All, Using Acronis True Image 10 Home to restore. Why does it take longer to Restore a SATA 1.5Gbps Hard Drive 30 GB partition than it takes to restore a IDE Hard Drive? Both Restores take place after a reboot. Both Drive Image partitions exist on the same Hard Drive. Note: Computer's Motherboard has internal SATA Connectors. Drive in question is Internal not external. Motherboard Specs from User's Manual for Serial ATA: Integrated in VT8237R Plus. Supports Raid 0 and Raid 1 functions. / Not used. Set up for IDE in BIOS. Support 2 serial ATA (SATA) ports. Compliant with SATA Version 1.0 specifications. Data transfer rates up to 150 MB/s. Motherboard has 2 GBs of Memory onboard with a 2.8 GHz Pentinum D Processor. While it works, it is so slow. Does Acronis True Image 11 Home work faster with SATA Hard Drives?
