    No, it took 64 mins. Although much larger size than yours (176 GB) it still seems surprisingly slow.

    In case it offers clues to those who understand the technicalities, here's a screenshot of my configuration:

    If the backup drive is an external HDD running on a USB 2.0 port, it would be significantly slower that an external SSD running on a USB 3.0 port.

    It runs at 5 AM, so maybe the OP doesn't care.

    There are several factors that determine the speed: the speed of the drive being imaged (SSD or HDD), the speed of your processor (Macrium is compressing the data) and the speed of the destination drive (internal/external, USB2/USB3, HDD/SSD).

    You have also chosen to auto-verify, which can nearly double the time to completion. Choosing high compression (as I usually do) would also slow it further.

    For comparison one of my systems with a 4th gen i7, an SSD system drive with 249GB data and imaging to an external USB3 HDD took 65 minutes including verification.

    You really don't want to try this on a system with a Pentium B950, an HDD for the system drive and only USB2 ports available....

    Many thanks Bree, that’s more reassuring. My OS, C:, is on a 256 GB SSD, so that 64 mins seems reasonable, yes? i7 6700K (4.0GHz).

    I spend a fair time maintaining my single PC, so can’t imagine how you manage your multiple systems!

    Itís an SSD on an i7 4 GHz. But also see Breeís follow-up.

    Until that manual test I hadnít realised how long it took, but yes, I deliberately scheduled it so that duration wasnít important.

    It takes no longer to update two than it does one if you let them update in parallel. Trouble is I have a few more than that Patch Tuesday can get very busy for me....

    The diversionary expedition has carried on to exhaustion,
    the question of the thread's title having been abandoned in the hinterlands,
    nearly from the moment that it was asked.
    Fine, nobody knows the answer, it happens sometimes.

    See similar issue here for another product:

    Windows 10 System Restore Show More Restore Points Box Missing and Restore Points Being Deleted or Missing | Acronis Forum

    So try increasing the amount of available space for system restore points.
