How long should a backup to image take?
I have a 1T drive that was dropped while in operation, and likely has some bad sectors… I am creating an image, and almost 48-hours in to the process I am at about 37%… it is still going, not stalled, just slow, and wondering what to expect…
Also, how long would a deep scan and recovery take?September 16, 2012 at 11:53 am #5018
Each recovery case is absolutely unique, so predicting scanning or recovery time is almost useless. Usually any will not take toooooo long. In your case, I definitely suspect that it’s a hardware issue that’s causing such a long DMG-backup creation.September 16, 2012 at 1:23 pm #5019
Seems to have picked up speed today, up to 62% (was only 38% this morning)…September 18, 2012 at 4:52 pm #5020
Image finally completed, almost 96 hours… deep scan of the resulting image took almost 24-hours… I saved the session, then based on the prompt I quick scanned some of the “lost partitions” then went back to recover the main session by reloading it… it’s been about an hour, and the activity monitor says the application is not responding… I’m going to leave it be for a bit and see what happens…September 18, 2012 at 5:57 pm #5021
Finally loaded… recovery underway 🙂September 18, 2012 at 11:58 pm #5022
Thanks for updating the thread.September 24, 2012 at 11:30 am #5023
The bulk of the recovery is done, but I am struggling with the last bit, well 65gig bit… On several initial attempts to just do one big recovery, the job would stall out after several hours and a few hundred gigs. I decided to eat the elephant in smaller bites, breaking it down by file type. This worked out pretty well until I got to the “document” file types, the last 200 or so gigs, when I started to encounter stalls again… I noticed that it was stalling with the same file type (olk14msgsource), so I bypassed it, and got throught the others… Now I have been working on the 65gigs of that file type for about 31 hours, with 32 hours remaining… According to the activity manager, it has 45 hangs, but it seems to come back after a while…
Any idea why this file type would be different, or why it keeps stalling out?September 25, 2012 at 4:54 am #5025
Are you on Mac OS X 10.8? Can you send these files to our support team (email@example.com)? ~/Logs/DiagnosticReports/Disk Drill*.hang and here as well: /Logs/DiagnosticReports/Disk Drill*.hangSeptember 25, 2012 at 4:36 pm #5026
10.6.8… I sent any log files related to disk drill.September 26, 2012 at 12:29 am #5027
Got ’em, hold on, pleaseOctober 1, 2012 at 1:16 pm #5029
I guess this new build of Disk Drill should be able to resolve the issue: /help/disk-drill-1-8-198/
