The job started running and the DVD LED was flashing as if it were writing files. It ran for 5 hours, at which time I needed my computer. Nero had no progress bar or a pause button. It did have a cancel button on the toolbar, but it had no effect. The Nero process was using a flat line of about 40MB of memory and no CPU useage. No other system resources were in use, and no significant I/O reads and writes were taking place, the system idle process was in the 90% range, however the computer acted un-useably busy. The only exception was Outlook, which was accidentally left open when the job started, and it worked perfectly.
I ejected the DVD hoping the backup would resume later, but alas, it failed.
- Anyone know how long a backup like this should take?
- Is Nero a good backup program?
- Is there a better free program?
