THow long to take a snapshot?


How long should it take to take a snapshot? After the initial install, which took the first snapshot automatically, I took one several days later. I almost gave up waiting but it finally ended. Today I tried to take another but gave up waiting after at least 6 mnutes.


Admittedly, I have a fairly loaded system but I tucked away lots of my folders under MY DOCUMENTS, MY MUSIC, MY PHOTOS and MY VIDEOS.


This leads to a second question. If one cancels BACKONTRACK while it is in the middle creating a new snapshot, have you destroyed the old snapshot?





UPDATE- April 14


OK, I found the problem. If you have left a data CD in a drive, BACKONTRACK won't complete taking a snapshot. Remove the CD, retry and all is fine. Doesn't take very long to complete the snapshot.

A snapshot should not take much more than a minute, but it does depend slightly on your system (and of course your hardware). Funny about the CD, that´s a new one.


DON`T CANCEL THE NEW SNAPSHOT. It could break things, and you may lose the old snapshot too... And undo would probably not work.
