    hi
    i tried to create an image of one of my computers last night before i went to bed.
    this normally takes aprox. a couple hours on that system.
    this morning it's still running ???
    reflect says...3hrs. left 22.4 mb/s transfer rate

    in the task mngr the cpu is 100%
    it's the free version of reflect and a 500gb hd... 206gb of info on the c drive i'm imaging

    i ran ccleaner and defragged as usual before i started the image.
    day to day use of the computer seems normal prior to this
    what the heck is going on here, is my hd getting ready to crap out ??
    any help appreciated

    How much free space does your hdd has? If it's full no matter how many times you defragged, it will never get faster.

    Have checked it with fdisk? It might have a writing error from a unwanted shutdown.
