I'm using True Image 8. On my old laptop (a 3-year-old Compaq with Pentium 4 and 750 MB RAM), it would take me 15 to 20 minutes to restore the hard disk's image. My new laptop is much more powerful (a new Dell inspiron with Pentium M and 2 GB RAM), yet it takes me 2 hours to restore the disk image. Creating the disk image doesn't take significantly more time, just restoring it. I don't understand why. Two possible "explanations" that come to mind: - one is that my new hard disk is bigger. The old hard disk was 30 GB. The new hard disk is 80 GB (however, I have tried partitioning the disk, and it seems to take about as much time restoring the image to a 30 GB particion on the new computer!) - Dell has a proprietary resotre option (to restore factory settings from something that seems like the "safe zone" on a CP/M partition of the hard disk. I'm wondering whether this may be affecting the speed. Any ideas about what to do?
