I have True image 2017 and I'm trying to backup 508GB of a 1TB drive through a 3.0 usb interface to a 3TB sata drive.

The back up is taking 18 hours. I checked my setting and compression is greyed out. I normally set it to max which consumes a lot of I5 CPU but makes a small transfer to the backup drive.

Why is compression greyed out on my standalone full backup?

Chuck, compression can only be set for new backup tasks and is not available to be changed after the task has been run and created any backup files.

Thanks! I deleted the failed backup and started a new fresh backup. The compression is no longer greyed out. Hopefully it will take less than 18 hours.
