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?

HTH,

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

Hi,

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

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