Hi:


I'm a first-time user and am curious about how long a backup should take. I'm running Windows 7 64-bit on an older AMD Athlon 64-bit chip PC and I have about 50GB of data on a 700GB drive. I'm trying to mirror the full drive to an external 1.5 TB HDD and it's been running over 9 hours yet still shows 0% compleete. The log (so far) indicates that FBackup found 50 GB of file and is preparing the image.


Does anyone out there know how long it takes for FBackup to mirror a drive with 50GB content on it? Is there an easy way to get a sense of progress?


Thanks.

I Finally cancelled it after 24 hours in the same state - 0%. I'm not sure why it got hung up at that point. Has anyone else had this happen? Any ideas?


Thanks.

Interestingly enough, the Cancel operation didn't work well either. After clicking on "Cancel", I could not close the application. After 25 minutes I had to force a shutdown on the PC and that seemed to do the trick.


I suspect that it was somehow hug up. Has anyone else had this experience? any ideas for me?


Thanks.
