Vista home premium backup


D

Donna

I'm using Vista backup and restore centre to do a full backup to a DVD and
it's now been running for more than 24 hours! The little green bar showing
progress is fairly close to the end but doesn't seem to be advancing any
further. Must be something wrong. Should I just end the process and wait
until I can get a portable drive to back up to and use some other software
altogether? Will the files on my DVD be of any use?
I'll let this run for a while longer but it seems hopeless. I haven't got
THAT much stuff on my computer!

I use a portable drive. First time I ran Vista backup it took about 40
minutes. Subsequent backups take about 10 min.

Hi Donna,

I use Vista Backup & Restore as well, it works O.K.
Total backup time is about 1 hour and requires 3 DVD-RW+ for a HF booked at
about 60 Giga.
I don’t know why using 4.5 Gb optical disks would be a wrong option ?
