I am a first time user of Disk Wizard. I have an HP A6703C Desktop computer with an internal Seagate ST336032 0AS 360GB drive. I am trying to create an image backup to a Seagate Freeagent 1.5 TB External Drive.
When I get to the backup settings (manual) I see the following under "Compression Level"
None: Estimated size of image backup 93.49 GB it will take more than one day at this compression level
Normal: Estimated size 55.92 GB; 16 hours at this level
High: Estimated size 48.91 GB; 14 house at this level
Maximum: Estimated size 47.7 GB; 13 house at this level
Why does it take so long?
Why so long with no compression - isn't that a straight file copy?
Why does max compression take longer than no compression?
Please forgive my stupidity.
