Backups taking a long time

Post by Rudamento » Fri Jul 26, 2019 9:24 pm

Hi, I do remote IT Support, and one of my Clients uses Cobian backup.
Recently, they had some issues with her computer.
After that, her backups take around 8 Hours now.
They used to take 30/45 Minutes.

We have not changed the amount of Data being backed up, nor the process for it.
Wondering if there's anything I can do/look for that may lead into why it's taking longer and how to make it return to the short time.

I have seen this before when the source disk is corrupted. Try running a chkdsk on the volume to see if it reports some error.
