    Yes. Depending on how you set it to clone, and what the used space is on the hard drive.

    Rough guide - 100 GB can take up to an hour on a low to mid end device, so that timing could be quite reasonable.

    Macrium uses smart sector cloning by default. I have never seen need to use old fashioned full bit by bit copying for many years.

    Reflect 7 does seem a lot slower.
