    Macrium Reflect creating full disk image QNAP NAS too slow


    I have always been a big fan of Macrium Reflect and have several images on several USB drives around the place.

    Recently I have purchased a QNAP TS453Be (8G memory) which I am amazed it took me this long to get one. With 4x4TB NAS drives in raid 5 configuration. Very happy with it.

    I have copied all my data from my desktop to my NAS just getting the hang of things, no issues there.

    However when I transferred data that way I had to string a blue CAT 6 cable across the entire house which was not winning any popularity votes from my significant other half. SO I am back to connecting over WIFI which limits me to about 50Mb/s I know. Not ideal but not really much other option at the moment.

    So last night I decided to create a full image backup to a folder on the NAS. After all, I do have roughly 10TB of space, so why not do a lazy image once a month to the NAS?

    So 24 hours later and Macrium Reflect still has 3 hours to go creating a full disk image of my SSD which is a Samsung SSD Pro 1TB. The amount of used data is about 750GB.

    It doesn't take nearly as long to make that image to a USB 3 drive....

    If I do the math I think it goes like this:

    750GB=750000MB
    number of seconds to transfer 750000MB @ 50Mb/s = 15000 seconds = 250 minutes = 4.2 hours.

    I know that maybe a rough calc, but I just can't see how it can be taking this long?

    Has anybody had any experience with creating images over NAS?

    I thought it would be quite good to have another layer of protection before I make some pretty significant changes to my file structure ie. declutter!!!

    Also, I am curious to know:
    1. Does a disk image age on a USB3 drive? I have heard of "bit flop" which is a worry....
    2. If a "bit flop" did occur, does that render the whole image file corrupt?
    3. Is it possible to copy disk image files, which are so large?

    :)

    Restoring Windows 10 Image using Macrium Reflect


    In addition to the above. Here's my suggestion in step by step.
    I assume you have Macrium Installed in your current HD and already made a backup copy.
    1. Connect your new HD via USB port and boot up.
    2. Run Macrium, click on Restore tab then select the Backup Image that you made to restore
    3. click on "select a different target disk" then select your new HD as destination

    4. Proceed to restore then Shutdown and disconnect the old HD and replace with the new HD
    5. Boot up with your new HD.
