SQL backup files takes a long time to restore

Hi Experts,

I am making backups of my SQL database nightly.  However, when I try to restore one of these files, it takes a long time to restore.  The status bar does not move at all for a very long time .. and it looks like it got hung up...but then it does finally finish.

The backup file is approx. 1 GB.  Are there certain settings to set in SQL that makes database better/ tweaks it so that it restores faster?  I remember restores for files from a copy of this SQL database tooks much faster, and the backups took less space as well.  I am guessing there are ceratain performance tweaks set in one and not in the other.

Are there any suggestions that would help performance and speed?  Thanks.

Depends on your backup mode (fully, diff, how many transaction logs to apply) and where you're restoring it too (ie, if you're restoring to a RAID 10 drive, it will restore faster than restoring to RAID5).
