Testing Phase so long

Post by freddo »

Why does the Testing phase of Backup4all take so long? It seems to take as long as a backup if not even longer. Does it do a bit for bit comparison? I would have thought a CRC check would have been sufficient.

Just checked - It took 1 3/4 hours to backup and just under 4 hours to test the backup. Why?

What backup destination do you use? What is the read / write speed on that device?
Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here: https://www.backup4all.com/backup4all-monitor.html
