I am using a VAIO SX14 i7 laptop with Windows 10 Pro installed on a 1TB SSD. I am trying to create a C drive (200GB used) full image to an external WD HDD. The external HDD is a "WD 4TB My Passport Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 MOdel WDBYFT0040BBL-WESN Blue" and is USB 3.0 with Mirco B connection. The cable is also USB 3.0 and is about 18 inches in length. The SSD has two partitions on it, C for the OP Sys and D for data only.
I started the image creation this morning and it is at 29% right now and shows time remaining 13 Hours. Each time over the past few months when i have done the same, it seems to take all day to complete. The Transfer Rate is about 125 Mb/s. Just like molasses in a fridge.
I am sure there are many reasons why it is slow, but are there any things I could check to see if there is an issue causing the slow speed of the image creation.
Thanks for any suggestions.
