Ghost 14 Running Time

Hello,

I just purchased Ghost 14 and am doing a complete system backup (entire computer to create a recovery point)  to an external hard drive.  I am backing up 123GB to a Seagate 350 USB 2.  I formatted the Seagate and Ghost 14 indicated it will take 33 hours.  Does

this seem normal?

No, It doesn't.

Be sure that you are connected to a USB 2.0 Port on your PC --> Connecting to a USB 1.1 Port will take best part of 30 hours to back up that amount of information.

If you are backing up from the same physical disk, this will also slow the process down due to over-seeking.

Could you provide us on any other information that may help?

Dave,

Thank you very much.  I was plugged into a USB 1.1 port.  The system back-up took about 1 hour for the 123GB.  I have looked

to detemine how to just back-up what I have changed each day in my documents and files and am not sure how to set that up.

I know how to set the schedule, but not to determine what is backed-up.  I am jsut editing my DVD clases in PowerPoint and

need to make sure my days work is save. I am a professional photographer and putting together some classes, so if I can provide

you with any assistance, let me know.
