Acronis True Image Home 2010 slow via RDP

Since upgrading to Acronis True Image Home (TIH) 2010, using TIH via Remote Desktop is diabolically slow.  The host machine I connect to is on a fairly quick ADSL connection and uses Windows XP.  The machine itself is quick, as is the remote desktop connection - but for some reason Acronis TIH has turned *really* slow to update the screen... like 15 seconds between clicks.

Short of rolling back to Acronis TIH 2009 is there anything that can be done to speed it along?  The machine I connect to is used soley for backing up with TIH and almost exclusively accessed via Remote Desktop over the ADSL connection.

Have you tried the basic things like reducing the colour depth and resolution on the connection, disabling sound/clipboard etc?

Yes, though connecting from my Windows 7 machine I can't go lower thann 15-bit colour.

It is all completely workable, even with ATI loaded, but as soon as it is the current window and the screen needs to be redrawn, it's 10+ seconds per update - even at 800x600.

I'm not too sure what else you can do with this to be honest.  If the RDP connection works well with everything BUT Acronis then Acronis is clearly the issue - ie the software application's design and coding.  It could be that Acronis uses a special 'drawing' function to produce its screen which would cause the issues you're describing.  I'm afraid your best bet is going to be to contact Acronis support and ask them to help.

The answer is that there is no answer: of course, the best available advice from Experts could be to ask Acronis.  They say there is no option to alter anything, but they will log the request to be considered in a future version.

For me, this means reverting back to v2009 on machines where remote desktop is important.
