Maybe not an Acronis issue, however maybe somebody with knowlegde can help me. Acronis used to make an image of 50Gb in a bit more than half an hour. Now it says it needs 3 hours. I am making the image file on an external hard disk. This connection used to be really fast with USB 2.0 and now I have the feeling it is working on USB 1.1 speed. I reinstalled Acronis 8.0 build 796 (the latest Dutch version) and this made no difference. I looked at the driver under Configuration > System and the VIA USB Enhanced host controller is said to function OK ! So I don't know what to do next.
