I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Wow..  That is a very loaded question.

Where are you backing up to?  Local drive or NAS or SAN?
If you are using a NAS or SAN, what is the speed of your network?
Local drive and across an IDE Interface or SCSI LUN?
How much memory do you have installed on the server?
Is the server 64-bit or 32-bit?

Have you queried your SQL Logs to see how long this is taking?


Ramesh Babu VavillaCommented:
select command,percent_complete,'elapsed'=total_elapsed_time/60000.0,
'remainind'=estimated_completion_time/60000.0 from sys.dm_exec_requests
where command like 'backup%'

this query returns you the estimated completion time, but it you have to start backup before starting it
you can use compression option to backup database,it will save you a lot space and time

Use the stats clause to get a percentage complete progress message.

Use Instant Initialisation to reduce the overhead of zero-ing the datafile.
