Why is backup so slow?
I am evaluating the Acronis Backup & Recovery Online 11 on our smallest server with 150 GB of hard disk space of which 87 GB is used. It has 2 virtual servers in Hyper-V (Linux & Windows XP). I started the initial backup job on Sep 12 at 11:32 AM. It has been 23 hours and it is just at 84% complete. We have a 90 Mbps up and 95 Mbps down bandwidth and tested using various speedtest servers (attached). Even at 50 Mbps, and for the entire 150 GB drive, it should theoretically take 6 hours only. Why is it so slow?
