the experienced processing time with your platform seems quite reasonable. With a P3 at 600 MHz it is very likely that the
biggest part of the overall processing time is needed to compress the video material. Unfortunately there is not very much
which can be done to accelerate this process. (Nevertheless we are always keeping an eye (or two ) on the runtime of
The runtime of the compression process is correlated to the indication of the quality bar: it decreases with rising quality.
At 100% quality no compression takes place at all.
So the only - and unfortunately in most cases hardly applicable - way to reduce the runtime of CloneDVD is to maximize
the quality for every backup.
