I just installed a Maxtor 6L04032 40 GB secondary IDE Hard Drive to use for backup.
Formatted it to NTFS.
The backup Software (Acronis) estimated 1 hour 30 min or so to backup 14 Gig. This is way too long, and should only take 15 minutes, or less. (15 minutes on my other Dell 1.7 gHz machine. (Dell Dimension 4400)
When I looked at process explorer, the following resource was using 85 to 95% CPU.
Interrupts Hardware Interrupts & DPC - Showing 0k private and 0k working set.
Tried to update driver, but said I had the most recent one.
Any help is much appreciated.
Backed up files on DELL Dimension 4400 XP Home to two different drives. Ran a-ok
Used those same two disks in DELL Omniplex XP PRO - High % Interrupts both drives.
