Last year I made a full back up of my system with Acronis True Image 2009, saved to external HD.
Now I seem to have two problems with trying to access that data.
First of all I could navigate to My Computer> External> Vista (name of backup)
From here I could click through all folders and copy and paste them to my desktop or other location. However the file transfers were taking for ever. I mean really slow. 4 hours to transfer a folder of 18 MB.
At first I thought it was my USB ports.
I have now checked and they are up to date and USB 2.0
Now when I navigate to My Computer> External> Vista - I just get that spinning blue circle and it never lets me past that to see the folders so I cant get anything out of the Acronis back up.
I also thought maybe the hard drive was broken. So I transferred the 18MB folder to the the same external HD. It took about 4 seconds.
I transferred it back again to my pc. Also 4 seconds.
So it seems that the issue lies with the Acronis back up and I have never used it before so I am not sure what to do now. Otherwise, is it a prob with Win7 explorer?
All help appreciated.
