retrospect "express" HD backup to slow! (with one touch II)


Recommended Posts



I installed the version of retrosect express hd which came with the maxtor one touch II harddisk. Then I startet the backup. It seemd to be very slow, so I left the computer alone to do the backup. After 5 houers it had only saved 900MB of 1,2GB data.

Copying the data manually takes only a few minutes (10-20 minutes or something like this), so I think something is really wrong.

I wrote to the Maxtor Support, and they told me that it could be a conflict with the firewall, so I opend the port that they indicated and tried once again to backup the data. I waitet 2 hours, and after this 2 hours it had only saved 200 and something MB. So it's still to slow!

What can I do?


The computer is running Windows XP Home SP2
