  • The time of the first backup depends from some factors, since it is a complete backup.

    • The overall amount of data to backup.
    • The bandwidth of your network connection (Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, wired or wireless connection?)
    • The quality of your network components and the drivers.
    • Interferring software like a security suite.
    • The processing power and overall performance of client and server.

    Without any data we cannot determine, how long a full backup should take or if it is already taking too long.
