1st time user of backup software, 1st time user of Paragon Backup Suite 10. I am testing paragon backup 10 suite to both understand how to use it and i hopefully get some clarity on the process, progress, and overall time to complete various tasks. I need some help understanding the boot drive restore process and approximately how long it should take: I did the following: Made a backup of my win 7 pro drive (1TB containing OS & Apps which only has about 100mb + about 60GB) and 3 other drives. The backup resides on a 4th drive which exclusively contains the paragon capsule. Created a recover disk. Disconnected all drives except paragon capsule drive and added a clean 250gb drive. I inserted the recovery disk, started the restore process. (btw - normal restore didn’t work so i choose safe mode...seems to work) I selected the archives to restore. I was trying to get just my boot drive (c) but its a little confusing. I selected the destination drive (250gb) drive. Restore created the hidden 100 mb partition then it started on the remaining files (apps and stuff...i think). Here is the main problem: The progress bars are frozen during the restore and only seem to refresh when the coping is complete. I know this by the 100mb restore but when i get to the 2nd partition (60GB) the progress is frozen and the files seem to take for ever to copy. Finally my questions: Am i doing this correctly? How long will this take? Will i have additional steps or issues since i am using a new smaller drive? Sorry about the long posting and thanks.
