    Unhappy Painfully slow Acronic True Image recovery

    Brilliant site folks - great community.

    Ive had a disagreement with my home PC (Windows XP Home) when trying a Linux installation (for fun!). Appear to have really messed up the partionning on my main internal hard drive (which is IDE Seagate 80gb new Jan 2007 and very reliable to date). So turned to my recent Acronis True Image back up which is around 30-40 Gb and which I had saved on a pretty new Seagate USB2 linked external hard drive. I can kick it off fine and it seems to start the process of putting this back on my internal drive. But never mind hours it wants to take DAYS to get this back on. In the process it is complaining of disc read errors (not sure if it means the Seagate external or internal). It offers "retry" which I do and it appears to keep going. Then eventually it seems to stick completely. I start again and same story.

    Help really welcome. Is an image recovery always that slow? Any other thoughts?

    Thanks

    Nope, it's slow because of the errors on one of the drives. It should take a couple of hours over a 100mb network to restore a 40gb image - over USB2 is should be half that.

    Download SeaTools from the Seagate site (Seagate took over Maxtor) and give that a shot. If not, the old Maxtor Powermax is still available on some sites (do a Google for it). Let it do it's stuff on each of the drives and see what it comes back with.

    I had the same problem with TrueImage, backup times were very,very, very slow.

    I created a bartpe cd with a TrueImage plugin.
    Backed up and restored a 40gb partition in under 20 minutes.

    The link is http://www.mechrest.com/plugins/Bart...artPEGuide.htm

    Hope this helps!
