Registry Backup is much faster with ssd drive!
« on: January 09, 2014, 10:49:20 AM »
I replaced my hard drive for an SSD drive on my dell laptop, previously it took Registry Backup approximately 2 minutes and 10 seconds to to be completed when I scheduled it to start when windows starts. With ssd drive, it takes about 45 seconds.  ;D

My program is only as fast as the hard drive can read the data. When it does a volume shadow copy it is waiting on the drive and when it reads and saves the registry, again it is waiting on the drive.

Faster the drive the faster the backup :-)
