Backups any faster?

Hello everyone, I have been here many times, but this is my first post. I have a question. I want to make a 1:1 backup of my C & C Red Alert 2: Yuris revenge and I wanted to know 2 things. My drive is a Lite-On 48246S

1: Using Alcohol 120% doing a backup, is it common to get errors in the first 2-3 min of a burn? I am using the Safedisk 2 defaults.

2: Do backup games load any faster that the original?

I ask this because the game takes about 5 min to get past the load screen, and I think this is becasue of Safedisk 2 :frowning: :frowning:

Yes this is part of the copy protection.

No they usually dont, but there are cases where the backup takes longer to load.

When making your backup try lowering the read and write speed down from max to say around 12X. You could also try using CloneCD to make your backup! It has made a perfectly working backup of my Yuris Revenge on my Liteon 40125S.
