    This is not an issue we have, just a testimonial. We set up a replica of our
    server in order to test paragon. We tested two options:
    1. Backup to disk with NTFS
    2. Backup capsule

    By far, very far, a backup capsule is a proffered option. The Paragon boot
    diskette is Linux based. The capsule is also a Linux file system. When
    reading the from the capsule it 22 minutes to restore a 10 GB image.
    when restoring from an NTFS partition, it took close to 14 hours! we tried
    twice, and I believe it is the NTFS read issue. On both cases, the image
    restore was flawless, the system was back at the same exact state it was

    Just an FYI

  2. Anmon, I think it might be specific to your circumstance.

    I use the NTFS option on a test bed with about 20 gb total, it images and
    restores in about 20 minutes.
