    Default EP45-UD3r slow hd/hd transfer speed

    I'm using two Samsung HD160JJ sata hard drives (no raid). When I try to "clone" my disk0 to disk1 using Acronis or G4U transfer rate is 1.9MB/sec (20 hour transfer). Using these same hard drives with my DFI-UltraD mb or Jetway MB the transfer rate is 50.0MB/sec (1hr transfer). The AMD64 bios can choose between SATA or IDE. This bios only shows IDE unless using RAID, which I'm not using. I have tried every combo in bios without success. What am I missing?
    Thanks in advance,
    Jesse (w6kkt)

    Are you using the Acronis Bootable Media, or launching the Clone Via Windows?

    Launching via boot or windows -same problem.
    I think it is a SATA problem in bios, or perhaps the acronis 8.0 will not work with the new mb, core2 duo , or hard drives.
    Thanks to all

    True image 8 is fairly old now, as Acronis are on TI12 aka 2009.

    You could try the bootable media in safe mode and full mode as they use different methods to query the drives/controller etc

    Acronis TI Official forums here:-
    Acronis True Image Product Line - Wilders Security Forums

    I've used Ti 10, 11 & 12 with ICH9r and all has been mega quick. I have got earlier True image versions but haven't tried them.

    Also my drives are in Native mode or AHCI mode.

    Edit:

    Just noticed you said IDE or raid in the bios, which suggests you are talking about the Jmicron (GB SATA) controller Purple ports. Are your drives connected to the Purple SATA ports?

    Ya, I would advise a program update for sure!!

    What ports do you have your drives connected to, and what settings do you have set in Integrated peripherals? Jumpers removed from the drives correct?

    Did you ever let it go for a while? Sometimes apps may show similar "Estimated times" but will speed up after a while. But I would imagine a Update would for sure fix your problem unless you have some funky settings or something is off like that

    No. I'm not using the Gigabyte ports (purple). I'm goint to hook up two ide drives (master & slave) and see if they transfer around 50MB/sec.
    I really appreciate the help-guys? I wish I had a tool for testing hd speeds.
    Thanks to all

    Fixed! The cloning software I was using was too old. I downloaded "Clonezilla 1.2.1-23" and it works great.
    Thanks to all.
