Backup Performance in 2020
Hello. I'm wondering if anyone has encountered the same thing that I have. I have been running scheduled full backups for years. In True Image 2019 (and earlier), my backups were pretty consistent in terms of how long they took. After upgrading to True Image 2020, the first backup took about the same time, but subsequent backups take 4-5 times as long. These are full backups, so each should be independent, and I'm not doing verification. I just did a test, and set up a fresh backup (not scheduled) to a USB drive. I have encryption, no compression, no verification, no splitting, so pretty simple. I ran it once and it took about 3 hours. After it finished I started it again (no changes to anything), and 4 hours later it's about halfway done. I've done this about a half-dozen times or more backing up different drives (I have two in my computer) to different USB drives and I always see this. The first time is 4-5 times faster than subsequent full backups. Any idea why? It never did this in earlier versions. I contacted their technical support before I realized it had to do with the 2nd and subsequent backups and asked them about the slow performance, and the only answer I got was that the new backup file format (tibx) is slower than the old one. Of course that doesn't make sense because the first time I run a backup is much faster than subsequent backups, even though they're all full backups. Thanks.
