Speed problem during backup

Recommended Posts

I use retrospect in order to backup files coming from my differents servers.

I use a FireWire LaCie disk. I launched my scripts but unfortunately it's really low and low.....

The performance counter indicates 70Mb/min.... that nearly means 1M/sec

What could produce that ?

I run Retrospect 5.0.205 under a G4 400 with OSX 10.2.8 and 512Mb Ram...It takes nearly 8 hours to make a 22Go Backup.


Anyone could tell me what's happening ?

First of all update to Retrospect 5.0.238.


Take a look at your CPU usage when the backup is running. I suspect you will see the CPU is running at close to maximum. CPU usage is especailly high when you have software data compression turned on.


I get similar performance on my G3 400 powerbook
