Mirror backup & test of 5500 files, 3.2Gb, to usb stick, Windows XP pro, took 5 hours. No encryption. Is this typical? Would it be just as slow using Backup4all? If not, how much faster?
10 year old software I was using (Stomp BackUp MyPC)does identical backup job in 25 minutes.
Thank You

Hi,
The backup should be much faster.

How long does it take to manually copy 3.2 GB from the same source location to the same USB drive using Windows Exporer?

Same size backup to same usb drive using Windows Explorer took 14 minutes. Would I get the identical slow backup using Backup4all?
