#9 Making an Image on a Network Drive is slow

Core (5)
Bryan Kirk


When I made an image of my 500GB HD, it took 6 hours and 40ish minutes for it to be made (it went at 6-7 MB/s). Right now when I'm copying it from the Network Drive to my HD using Windows Explorer (on Windows 7), it states that its going to take 4 Hours and 30 minutes for it to be copied over (at 10.8 MB/s). If Windows Explorer can copy at that speed, then ODIN should be able to also transfer at that speed.

    Oh, I forgot to mention that I used the copy used blocks option, so the resulting Image was only 176 GBs in size.
