Re: [LUG] FWBACKUPS.. How long should it take?


I find it best to defrag Windows discs before back up. This is necessary to cut time from say 5 hours to 3 hours.

Bitter experience says Windows defrag is just the kind of thing you are likely to need a backup for recovering from - if I had any - I'd back-up first even if slow and then defrag but it comes down to how much data you are prepared to lose versus convenience I guess.
