Absurd alledged disk writes when running backup

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Lieutenant Scott, Oct 9, 2011.

  1. I wanted to see how fast I was backing up to my USB portable drive using EaseUs backup, so I looked in the task manager, see:

    It appears to have written 2.6TB in a few minutes. I know it hasn't, it's only a 500GB drive. It claims to be writing about 10GB per second which would finish the backup in 50 seconds, but it takes a few hours.

    Any ideas what's going on?
