hi,what's the new in the build .889....thanks (....nada for via 8237.....)
Stick with 826 if you want high-speed USB drivers. If you like watching paint dry, upgrade to 889.
With my hardware, a Dell 5160 laptop and an external USB2 drive, when I boot from the rescue cd with builds 796, 800 or 826 I can create an image or restore it in approximately 20 minutes.
When build 859 and now 889 came out I tried the same thing with their rescue cd's and the time goes up to almost 2 hours.
That proves that Acronis changed the drivers for the rescue cd's in these two latest builds and screwed up something that used to work.....specifically fast USB2 drivers that allowed for fast imaging.
It's so obvious they used slower drivers to try to accommodate some other far out patch they thought must be an "improvement".
You can see the drive activity lights blinking about 2 Hz where before they were on almost constantly. What does that prove? Lousy read/write rates with the 859 and 889 drivers, probably USB 1.0 at best.
Donprovo, how many gigabytes are you imaging that takes 20 minutes and what is the size of the imaged file - with which compression?
Thanks for the info on your experience with build 889.
I have a 40Gb drive with about 10Gb used. I always use the default normal compression.
As the threads indicate, 859 has a defective image mounter and also has very slow image/restore performance for many users compared to the previous 826 build. 889 is reputed to fix the defective image mounter but it doesn't fix the slow drivers of 859. So, the alternative is to stick with a prior build like 826 which has faster drivers.
What kind of "slower" times are you refering to? It took me about 15 minutes to image a 15GB partition to another partition (same drive). If it did take a minute or two longer than perhaps I did not notice?
Are you imaging to an USB drive?
How can I get Build 826? I have 800 but skiped 826 and now I only see 889 listed. Am I missing something or is it not available now?
