I spent a week trying to solve why my partition backup to an external hard drive was extremely slow (estimated 9 days for approx 475 GB on the drive) and I finally found the answer.

(fyi the answer was NOT applying the lastest snapapi drivers)

I found this by googling and it reduced the time from 9 days to 8 hours and the backup completed successfully. Hope this helps. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The default Windows settings for FireWire-connected drives can reduce your External drive performance by as much as 90%. This problem is easily corrected, just follow these instructions:

1. Open 'My Computer' or 'Computer' from your (Start) Menu or Button.
2. Right-click the external Hard disk drive from the list and select 'properties'
3. Click the 'Hardware' tab.
4. Highlight the drive your having problems with from the drive list and click on 'Properties'.
5. Click on the “Policies” tab.
6. You will see two radio buttons - 'Optimize for quick removal' and 'optimize for performance'.
7. If not selected, select 'Optimize for performance' and click on 'OK'. If running Vista or Windows 7 also check 'enable write caching on the disk'.
8. Click on 'OK' and exit.

Lighting speeds should now be reached.

This problem can affect XP, Vista or Windows 7. It may improve performance for any drive connected via FireWire.

I'm using Windows 7 Professional. After step 4, I had to click 'Change Settings.'

4. Highlight the drive your having problems with from the drive list and click on 'Properties'.
4a. Click 'Change Settings.'
5. Click on the “Policies” tab.

P.S. I'm using Acronis 2010 because I hate the UI in 2011 and I understand it's much the same in 2012. Backing up to another internal drive, I get a speed of 3,900 MB/min for a 150GB file. Backing up to a USB drive (My Book USB 2.0) I get 1,644 MB for roughly the same file. Total times 38 minutes and 91 minutes. The internal drive has Enable write caching selected. My Book drive has Quick Removal selected rather than Better Performance and I didn't change it as it's fast enough.

This info is great up to a point, but take a look at this:

It appears that the optimize for performance tweak will create some 'Device is not ready' errors, at least for USB drives.

Just thought I would add that to the discussion.

Your solution did the trick! It worked on Windows 10. Thanks!!!!!!!

It’s important to back up your files on a regular basis, and Ashampoo Backup Pro 14 is one of the better tools for the job.

The program can back up hard drives and partitions, you can run full backups or incremental ones.

The incremental option will backup only the files that have changed since the last backup, which is quicker and creates smaller files, but is slower to restore because all the increments have to be joined.

The backups are made in the background and this Ashampoo software will never disturb your work.

It’s essential that you back up your important personal files on a regular basis in case your data becomes inaccessible due to disk failure or malware infection.

Windows comes with its own built-in backup tool but, as is often the case there are better third-party solutions available, including Ashampoo Backup Pro 14.

You don’t need any technical knowledge to use this software, it allows you to backup data, your entire system, hard drives, partitions or just individual files. You can run full or incremental backups and when disaster strikes you can quickly restore everything or choose the files you want.

Additionally, the software lets you create an emergency rescue disk that allows you to restore a backupeven in cases when your computer does not start anymore.
You can create the rescue system as a USB stick or a CD/DVD.
