    It takes longer to backup than to restore but it is still faster and better than MS's . I can restore 188Gb in less than 2 minutes.

    Mine takes 6 minutes to restore 11GB on a PCIe SSD (that works out at 244Mbps). What drive do you use? 15GB in 1 minute (0.25 GBps) is 2000Mbps which seems very fast.
    Wow. I backup 43 GB and it takes less than 3 minutes. To restore takes about 5 minutes. This is from 2 x 840 PRO in RAID 0 or 3x 1TB WD Blue in raid 0.

    Really? From what? That is > 1.5 GB/s. Or are you talking 188 gigabits and not gigabytes. I expect the latter.

    No I am talking about 188GigaBytes over an E-Sata External Hard drive connection. That also is with formatting the disk first. This is the restore part. The backup takes about 30 minutes.

    Esata can do up to 500 mb/s. It is limited by sata 3 bandwidth. So how do you get more than 3x that limit? It is hard to imagine that you are getting over 3x compression.

    I assume you are using Macrium. It's default units for display of how much data has been transferred is in bits not bytes. There is a setting to change that to bytes. 188 Gbits is 23.5 Gbytes = 195 MB/s which makes sense.

    It is done off line using a Restore Disk from Macrium. I am talking about all of my programs and two games Ghosts is ~28 Gbytes and Advanced warfare is ~65 GBytes I also have CS 6.0 and other large programs. Just my music collection is 45 GBytes. Now I was wrong in that MR does not format the source drive but it deletes it if you want it to. I use the paid for version and from what I understand it scans the hard drive first and when it restores it, the program only really is changing anything that has changed. The initial speed is 1gb/sec but then it will drop to 800 to 700.

    Do yourself a favor and download free Macrium.
    I agree.. Macrium (Trial) or FREE - Each of them are NO - COST. and they work fine. I have used them in making and IMAGE and also recoving that IMAGE that they made. All is good and Free. Be safe.. Cliff M.

    That's the RDR feature I was referencing in post # 19. More on that here: http://knowledgebase.macrium.com/pag...811&src=search

    Thank you, I'm not interested in alternatives though. Just looking to fix this error.
    I was like you and wanted an answer, but I gave up and installed Macrium. I love Macrium Reflect - alway saves me!

    I know , that is why it is fast. I did look up my E-Sata speed in my MSI manual and it is at 3.0Gb/s.
