    I am using the new version of FD-ISR (3.31.232) and went with the default of vss for the copy engine. Before I used rss.

    Compared to rss it takes a long time (11 seconds) to get going, which I believe is something to do with vss checking on other areas using this service.

    My copy speed is now around the 1995-2020kb mark. This does not apply for copies to external disc where it is much quicker.

    Is this about the speed other users achieve ?

    That's going to be a function of your disks, cpu, bus, etc. Also in my case since I go to archives, most of the time, that will be faster.

    Yes, I have noticed that too when VSS was introduced.
    I assumed that it takes more time to start the service. If you like you can reverse to using RSS, it's documented somewhere.

    I would like to do that but thought I'd better try and get used to VSS as Todd said they are doing away with RSS in the future.

    Interesting development. As i employ the original version i always found that RSS was at least more stable, the speed aspect of Copy/Update didn't really enter the picture for me as much as functionality as opposed to some who grimmed a bit over it.

    This app is sure to go down in history as a pioneer of ISR innovation that just so happen to pop on the scene at the right time, and they say timing is everything.

    It still escapes me how the home user workstation version of before fell so short for Raxco as to turn it back over to Leapfrog (i think) and in search of another distributor, HDS of all groups picked it up but carved it down to lesser standards then before.
