HEY!! HEY!! Jason
NOW we are getting some where on this
If it is running that slow it sounds like your drives Transfer Mode is set on PIO Only :sad:
We need to change this to DMA to do this Follow this steps
R-Click on "MY COMPUTER" on the menu go down click on "PROPERTIES"
System Properties opens
now click on the "HARDWARE" tab, now click on the BUTTON that says "DEVICE MANAGER" Device Manager will open
follow the little boxes with the + in them until you get to the one next to IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers and click on that little box when you do you will now see a "PRIMARY IDE CHANNEL" and a "SECONDARY IDE CHANNEL"
r-click on the "PRIMARY IDE CHANNEL" and click on "PROPERTIES" now click on the "ADVANCED SETTINGS" tab
under "DEVICE 0" where it says TRANSFER MODE make sure "DMA if available" is in the drop down window, if "PIO only" is listed then open the drop down window and select "DMA if available" do the same for "DEVICE 1" below and click OK (NOT THE CLOSE BUTTON ON TOP)
NOW do the same thing for the "SECONDARY IDE CHANNEL"
this will or should take care of it running slow
(ALSO) it is a good idea to close any programs that are running in the background when you are doing back-ups at the bottom in my signature click on the link that says "THE BURNING FACTOR" good tips there
