I am experiencing what i believe is extremely slow restore speeds from a NTBackup set file stored on a local drive on a fully patched Windows 2003 Server Machine (dual core Pentium D @ 2.8HHz w/ Dell Perc 5/i Raid controller). When restoring a 22GB backup set off of a local drive, I am only restoring ~0.21 GB per minute. I have checked the task manager and Idle Process is @ 99%, ntbackup between 0-1%, so I imagine that the bottleneck is with the I/O.  The first question is: Is this speed normal? The second question: If this is not normal, any suggestions on pinpointing the bottleneck and fixing it?
