There are reports of very slow imaging or recovery using the TI Recovery CD when the backup is stored on an external USB 2.0 drive. Also, there are reports of slow recovery of the C: partition when the backup is on a USB drive. This is probably because the Linux drivers used on the TI Recovery CD and in the recovery environment for the boot drive are not well matched to the USB chipset on their motherboard. Installing a PCI USB 2.0 card (or a USB 2.0 PC card on a notebook) should speed these operations up greatly if the chipset on the add-on card is well supported by the Linux drivers used by TrueImage. In my experience, Adaptec USB 2.0 PCI and PC cards (NEC chipsets), are fast with the TI version 8 and 9 Recovery CDs. Has anyone tried this add-on board approach with systems that have "slow" backup or recovery times using the onboard USB 2.0 connectors? Are the Adaptec cards still fast with TI Home version 10 Recovery CDs? Which other brands of USB 2.0 PCI and PC cards are fast with the Recovery CD?
