I created image of my harddrive (normal setting, compressed to 17 GB) in about 25 minutes using TI8. But partially restoring that image took over 9 hours at which point the "progress bar" was only about 60% complete and it said "41 minutes to completion" - so I waited over 2 hours only to say "43 minutes to completion." Then I canceled in frustration and swore at the screen and cursed Acronis. Restoration was too slow. Slow restore. Restore slow. Slow. I used build 937 to create the image. I had build 889 and 937 Boot CD and used it to restore the image. Both took insane amount of time to get anything done (for example, 1% every hour). My situation is below: (1) I have 1 physical harddrive. (2) 2 partitions so: "primary active" partition contains the WinXP and the second partition, also "primary", contain just storage data. The image file is located in the second partition, storage partition, restoring only the "first partition" - obviously. (3) the file system is "NTFS" for all. (4) P4, 1 GIG Ram, 200 GIG harddrive (5) the created TI8 image files (spanned to 4 at 4.3GB) is 17 GB in total in about 25 minutes. NOTE: (A) Copied the image files to a networked server. (B) Also incredibly slowwww to restore the image using the networked server. (C) Copied the image files to a USB 2.0 external harddrive. (D) Also incredibly slowwww to restore the image using the external harddrive. There was no problem in creating the image of the drive whatsoever. I am fed up with Acronis TI bs. I wasted so much time on this - entire day and counting!!! On website, Acronis TI is supposed to be "dependable and reliable something that I can count on." What a bs. Is this "slowness" a bug in the TI8 software?
