Tried to post in another thread, no answer. This time (may be) better. True Image 9.1 3886 running on a - Dell Dimension 4400 (P4 + 768MB RAM + HD Ultra ATA 120GB 7200RPM + network adapter @ 100Mbit/s) with WinXp + SP2 + latest patches + NOD 32 2.70.32 + Zone Alarm 6.5.737.000 network backing up on a - Dell Dimension 4400 (P4 + 768MB RAM + RAID 5 array controller 3Ware Escalade 9600s with 4x320GB@7200rpm SATA disks + network adapter @ 100Mbit/s) with Windows 2003 server Standard Edition + latest patches + NOD 32 2.70.32 + Windows 2003 firewall. Options selected - Backup (first time, no existing set) - Disk image - Differential - Maximum priority & network speed - Fast incremental/differential backup enabled. Just to backup 28GB of disk image, the projected time was shown between 12/15 hours. Unacceptable.. Unbeleivable, also because CPU and network was complitely offloaded on both sides and network file copying operations FLY Went home. The day after, 24 hours later, ATI9 was still running with 1:51 left, when it stopped working!! Apart form getting stuck, there must be a reson why it is so slow. It looks like ATI9 is sleeping..... Can somebody help?
