FBackup is extremamaente slow when copying files from an external drive (source) to another (destination).

When I do a direct copy with Windows 7 - 64k (simultaneous to FBackup) the transfer speed is 11MB/seg, much higher than the FBackup (less than 1 mb / sec).

I am using version 4.6.260.

Below the summary and part of log showing the slow progress (each photo takes up about 4 MB).

It's taking more then 6 hours to backup a 37.3 MB photo folder with 7653 photos in a external drive. Runs much faster with C: drive photos and files.


Something can be done?

Thank you

Carlos

Hi,


You upload the files with Windows Explorer in the same time with FBackup? In this case, Windows Explorer could take most of the bandwidth having a higher priority.

Actually I did several tests and the Log presented was without Windows Explorer.

I made now a very focused small test and I discovered that the slowness occurs specifically when the drive E (WD Passport 1 TB 070A) is the backup destination.


Using Windows Explorer to the same drive is fast.

Using the reverse (Fbackup from external drive E to F) is fast.

The drive E is working perfectly well on all others instances.


Thank you for same light..

Hi,


It seems the write speed on that drive is slower than the read speed.
