  1. My weekly Windows 10 Back up - is taking HOURS and HOURS to complete-


    Have been using windows back up - Windows 10 for sometime.
    Recently bought a larger 3TB drive and started a new back up.
    Up until recently - the weekly incremental back ups were completed in 10 minutes - although last weeks took quite a bit longer - several hours.
    Today - It started at 2pm as usual and at 11.30pm its only 21% completed and I am confused as to WHY.

    It seems as tho its copying everything from scratch again.
    I did have FILES and FOLDERS ticked but not sure if I need to do that so have unticked it.
    Would appreciate simple help as getting older and greyer and more confused lol.
    Thanks so much.
    Margaret

  2. Windows reset taking hours to complete

    its been almost 3 hours and my PC is only one 10% of completion. I need to have it done soon for I am selling it. Should it be taking this long? I have almost 700 gigs used up with 500 being used on hard disk and 200 on ssd.

    Rolling back taking many hours

    I was assisted by Microsoft with rolling back to Windows 7 after it was determined that my Windows 10 install was corrupted, possibly by unstable internet. The rollback has been going for 12 hours (I read elsewhere of one taking 11 hours). The hard drive
    appears active...slow, but active. Thoughts? Help?
