I've recently replaced a pc that is sort of used as a server for storing images (photos taken at the doctor's office). The backup job is about 600Gb and in Windows NT Backup it ran about 30 hours so I broke it up into smaller jobs throughout the week and ran a full backup on Friday evenings. The new pc is Windows 7 and runs quickly, but backs up horribly slowly.
With Windows 7 backup and restore it is getting about halfway done in a 24 hour period. I am backing up to USB2 external hard drives, swapping them every night so they can take them off site.
I am not opposed to spending money on a "real" backup application. What would you suggest that will help me to get 600Gb backed up to external hard drives in Windows 7 on a nightly basis?
