Yeah that’s why I didn’t like Time Machine… it is incredibly slow ! yes it’s free… but it’s damn slow !
for only 12gig… when Acronis True Image or Carbon Copy Cloner would have done it in 5 minutes.
And i backup on a Samsung T3 SSD… That’s not what the average user would use as a Backup Drive… More a USB2 or USB3 Hard Drive so… (I use a SSD to restore faster… I don’t like to wait more than 30mn for restoring generally it took less on a SSD for a full Music computer Restoring task to be complete, mine is Graphic and Music Computer so there’s a lot of software and VST library… I don’t use NI Komplete anymore but before the libraries was on an dedicated libraries HD if you use Logic, Spectrasonics… you know what I mean … you have to symlink everything)
Long to Backup ! Better at restore speed 7-10 minutes from a SSD… but I’m sure CCC version 5 with a full backup will be faster than Time Machine if the amount to restore is like 50 to 150GO as well as Acorns True Image ! As I want to keep my Mac in HPFS for me it will be Carbon Copy Cloner version 5
Apple Time Machine work as expected… They usually not fixed the missing icons on the hard drive set as a time machine you have to launch a save to get back the icon. The restore process is not that long. But I do not tested on a FULL Backup image disc so I don’t know (for now) regarding speed which one is the best.
But Time Machine is ok regarding HPFS too after restoring everything is CLEAN, but I expected no less from apple that’s why I try Time Machine the last.
I waiting for a support reply from ACRONIS True Image and I will post a fix if there’s a terminal fix to hidden the files and folder from the main volume after restoring from TI with HPFS file system. If not, you should probably don’t use HPFS with Acronis True Image 2018…
Personnel i will probably move to Carbon Copy Cloner version 5
