VERY SLOW back-ups RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Newbie here, I just installed WHS on an older system (1GB RAM and 1.35GHz cpu).  The initial back up on my home pc (180 GB) has been running for 24 hrs and is only 35% completed.  This seems to be an excessive amount of time.  I am not sure if this is taking so long as it is the initial back up? Both are wired to my home network switch.   Any help here would be helpful.

  • I would suspect drivers (or maybe a bad cable) since it's taking that long. The first BU does take longer than others and 180G isn't exactly small but 24 hours for 35% seems wrong. Is your network 10/100 or gigabit?
