Complete System Backup Time?



When using the Vista Complete system backup to an external disk it seems to
complete very fast. I am getting approx 40gigs backup to a file of 32 gigs
in about 25 minutes. Does this seem reasonable? With Ghost it used to take
much longer, and with ThinkVantage it wold take a couple of hours.

Thanks for any and all comments

Hi Ron,

It will go as fast as the throughput to the device allows, so no, I don't
think that is unusual. Subsequent writes may be only backing up changed data
which will make things even faster.

Best of Luck,
