I have a problem with my Mysql DB (InnodDB tables). I'll take mysqldump backups every 12 hours with the following command:

MySqlDump --defaults-file=$MySqlBackupConf --host=localhost --result-file $MySqlBackupFile --default-character-set=utf8 --events --triggers --routines --single-transaction=TRUE --log-error=$MySqlBackupLogFile --verbose $Item

Backup takes 8 minutes, size is about 2.4GB

The resotre is made with the Data Import from Workbench but it takes long, long, long... (5-6 hours or more):

mysql.exe --defaults-file="c:\...\tmp8zrchd.cnf"  --protocol=tcp --host=localhost --user=root --port=3306 --default-character-set=utf8 --comments --database=database_2  < "C:\\Users\\user\\Documents\\dumps\\Dump20170315.sql"

The OS is Windows Server 2012 R2, Mysql 5.7.16. I tried the following settings but no change:

innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit = 0
innodb_write_io_threads = 12


Can anyone help with this?
