Until today (probably 25+ times), my backups took 30 minutes. Today it took 1 hour 45 minutes.  What could be causing this?

Jim, impossible to tell you why the backup should take a longer time to run with the minimum information available.

Please download the MVP Log Viewer from the Community Tools link in my signature and use this to check what messages may have been written to the backup log for the long running task.

Jim, thanks for posting the log information - everything looks to be normal with no error indications other than the time taken looks to be longer than you say has been the case for your previous backups.

This backup was a Full backup image, D:\Drive D_full_b35_s1_v1.tib so were the previous backups perhaps Incremental ones?

No, I always make full backups.  And, the size was about the same as always.

Jim, sorry but have no explanation for why your backup should have taken longer.  There could be many possible reasons including other activities happening on your computer etc.
