    If you have a very large drive with a ton of data on it, it could take a long time, yes. Another issue could be the data transfer rate between the computer and the backup drive. This can be due to something as simple as the use of USB2 instead of USB3, or even a failing drive which slows down the read/write process.

    In my experience, the "verify" part will take just as long as the backup.

    Perhaps the following can give you an idea.

    The used space on my drive C: is just 16.1 GB.

    I'm not quite following you here. Where are you trying to put the backup?
    Perhaps post a screenshot of Macrium showing the drives connected to the system?

    On my SSD?

    I found out whats taking so much space, its mostly my games like world of warcraft. Is it possible to take a backup without the games?

    You need to make the backup image on an external drive.
