Hi, I just purchased and installed Acronis True Image 8.0. I am Creating a full image of drive C: on my workstation and placing the backup file in a directory on a server. The backup appears to be running just fine (it is progressing), however my CPU on the workstation that is being backup up is running 100% with 99% of that CPU attributed to the TrueImageService.exe. The workstation being backed up is an AMD64 3000+ processor with 1 gigabyte of memory. The drive ( C: ) being backed up is a single ATA (not SATA) drive. The server (really a workstation) that is receiving the backup file has a Pentium 4 3.0ghz processor with 1 gig of memory. Both computers involved in the backup are using 1 gigabit NIC's and the data is being sent through a simple 1 gigabit LAN (single 1 gigabit router). The backup looks like it is going to take about 1.5 hours. When I compare this to the use of Norton Ghost doing this exact same backup the runtimes are comparable but the CPU usage is very different. Norton Ghost takes 20-25% of the CPU to do comparable work. Since this is a workstation (I actually use it for development work) having a backup running and using 100% of the CPU is not acceptable. I would like to schedule a full backup to run once a week and incremental backups to run throughout the day. Is the 100% CPU usage normal behavior? If not, what could be the cause in my case? If this is normal (default) behavior, is there a way to throttle the CPU usage without negatively affecting overall run times? I'm hoping to replace Ghost on several workstations but I cannot if the CPU usage profile is going to be so extreme. Thanks.
