Ghostcast Windows 7 Image Very Slowww (Creating and Restoring Images)

Created: 20 Aug 2012 | 1 comment

Hello everyone!

I hope someone can shed light on my issue.

I am trying to capture an image of a windows 7 machine that is ready for image capture. The problem I have is that it takes over 8 hours to capture an image???

I must be doing something wrong. I only capture 1 partition that holds OS and programs that is about 300GB and only 20-25GB used... The Ethernet card only supports up to 100Mbps speeds so not sure how much that affects all this. I have tried this in a a few diffrent locations, Host and client pick up IP Address from DHCP Server fine but speeds are ridicoulous for completion.

Do I have to adjust my partition type? (It's already an NTFS partition) .. Why is it so damn slow?  I have tried both "Fast" and "No" Compression and they both have similar results..

Please Help! SOS

What version of Ghost?

What boot environment (DOS, WinPE ??)?

Are you using Ghostcast server ?

Have you checked the actual connection speed of your NIC?  Although it is a 100Mbps device, it can also run at 10Mbps, and this can often be determined by looking at the connection light colour on the hub/switch.

Frankly, there are so many variables, that without much more detailed information we can only guess where your problem is.
