I did some backup & restore tests these days and got some interesting results regarding the recovery time, respectively r/w speed. A restore within Windows from always the same backup source disk to different targets (HDD, SSD, incl. RAMDISK for fun
) performed with the possible max. read speed of the backup disk. Also the type of backup (full/incremental) doesn't harm the restore speed in a considerable way.
But restores of a full backup from within the recovery media drop to an average of half the restore speed, incremental restore points drop to less than 1/5. (Side note: After this I did the incremental restore with two steps. First I restored the full backup and then the incremental and each round were performed with half the speed again. ^^
Does anyone made similar experiences?
