    Hi,

    is it normal that creating an image of a partition (200 GB) where 33 GB are used takes 29 minutes (viewed remaining time) and restoring this partition takes about 45 minutes?
    I have SATA RAID with the Intel 82801FR controller.

    Hello MartinH,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    The behaviour you described is normal. The reason is that when you create the image Acronis True Image uses Windows drivers for your hard drive controller (and other devices as well). But when you restore the image you usually need to reboot the computer in Acronis True Image stand-alone mode and the Linux drivers are used then. Our Development Team is constantly working on driver optimization to make the processes faster and each new build contains some improvements.

    Thank you.

    I tested it only in the linux mode.

    29 minutes creating
    45 minutes restoring

    without any change in the partition size.

    I made an BIOS update a few days ago. Could that be a problem to TI ?
    Unfortunately I don't remember whether restoring was already slower before the update or not.

    It is the A06 BIOS-Update for DELL Dimension 8400
    Do you have a possibility to check the compatibility?

    Hello Martin,

    There should be no problems with compatibility. Could you please let me know whether the restoration was completed succefully and you can use the restored system?

    The time difference may appear even in stand-alone mode. Could you please tell where the image is stored?

    Thank you.

    The restoration was succesfull and I can use the restored system.
    The image is stored at the other side of the drive:

    C: (system)------------D:--------E: (image location)----
