ntbackup performance

By matt ·
I have 2 separate systems, similar configuration. Both Microsoft Small Business Server Standard editions performing a nightly ntbackup to an external disk drive (same make and model both systems). One backed up 47GB in 2 hours. The other took 5 hours to back up 17GB. Where should I look to determine the bottleneck? Thanks!

The Windows supplied Backup Utility

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to ntbackup performance

Even MS admit that it doesn't work so I would go looking foe some third party solution.

Part of the New Vista OS is that in that the Backup Utility actually works unlike all the previous pieces of software that they have put out for this purpose. So as you are using 2003 and Vista Server isn't as yet being talked about I would go looking for a decent third Party Backup solution as the MS offering will not suit your needs.
