    I recently tried Windows 7 RC and didn't like it, so i restored my Vista installation, created with True Image Home 2009, for the first time. I used the bootdisk, because i wasn't sure restoring would work from Windows 7. I started the restore around 11 in the evening, and when i looked at my computer the next morning around 7, the restore hadn't finished yet. When i looked again around 9, it had finished and i had a full working Vista installation again. The backup had a size of about 50 GB and was stored on an external pocket USB drive. Why did it take 8 to 10 hours to restore this backup?

    It sounds like either the drive was operating at close to USB 1 speeds or the Linux drivers used don't correctly support your computer's chipset.

    Do you currently have TI 2009 installed in Vista? If so, how long does it take from Vista to validate the 50GB image file stored on the USB drive? Normally, USB 2.0 will do at least 1GB per minute.

    It took about 25 minutes to validate the archive in Vista.

    Hello Ilex and MudCrab,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    First of all, please make sure you use the latest build (9796), which is available here. To get access to updates you should first register Acronis software.

    If the issue still persists, please copy your image to internal drive (if possible) and check whether the issue persists.

    Thank you.
