Right again, Dave, it completely slows to a crawl.

Apparently we crept up in TB size incrementally and never noticed that the backups where taking so long. After a job we'd dump 200 GB at the most on the production RAID, and it would copy overnight, every night to the backup RAID.

Since my 7 GB test copy will now take hours and hours to copy over, what's the best strategy to create a backup? Would it be faster to copy the info over to just another RAID the same size, not to a disk image?

We can't take over three weeks to make the first copy, and I'm worried that this speed is so much slower than before.

Any ideas?
