vista backup taking several days!!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi


    i started my backup of around 120 gig of data to a nas unit about 4 days ago and it has now reached about 54%.  now to me this seems a ridiculous amount of time for something that maybe would have taken just a number of hours to do if i had copied the files directly.  


    but is it one care or vista thats at fault?

    i notice as well though that it can also take an age to copy any files from one location to another if they are larger than a couple of gig using vista.  (i found it quicker to reinstall a dual boot version and then use xp to copy all my files across drives when i was initially setting up the computer)


    either way i would be grateful if microsoft could come up with a fix (whether it be for one care or vista) to speed my system up.


    is there anything i can do here that will help it?
