Tried to run a backup of my MB Pro to an USB 3.0 drive. Amount of data 385GB; after an hour (and 10GB backuped) Acronis told me that remaining time is 1d 1hr!

This cant be true. About ten times slower then Time Machine.

Any ideas? Or did I waste my money?

To add, just tried Carbon Copy Cloner, which did it in 1:55 hrs.Screenshot at Juni 30 22-57-49.png

What sort of an external drive do you have? Sometimes you might be limited by the actual physical drive that is inside.
