    I installed a secondary internal hard drive in my Dell Inspirion 8600. To back up with minimal compression takes about 15 minutes. However, to restore the image
    takes well over Two hours. I can't figure out why. Does anyone have a clueo_O? Thank you.

    I Assume you create the image using TI Windows mode and restore after booting into TI rescue mode. In which case, it's probably an Acronis Linux device driver/HD controller issue. Can you create a "Safe" version of the rescue CD and boot/restore from that? The safe boot rescue media uses BIOS and DOS functions (rather than Linux drivers) to access the hardware.

    I have TI 8 on a several desktops and this has never happened. I use Acronis recovery manager as well as a boot disk and on just my laptop the restore process is quite long. However, it restores in 15 minutes if I partition a backup portion of my main drive. So I am baffled.

    Restoring from a second partition on your first HD using TI recue mode seems o.k. so it can't be a Linux driver/HD controller issue (I'm assuming your second HD is connected to the same controller as the first). Are you able to set the transfer mode of the second HD independently in your laptop's BIOS? If so, what's it currently set at - Int13, PIO/DMA or UDMA ?

    There are no options for that...
