    Server 2008 R2 Backups Slow

    Hi all,

    I have just recently moved our file server over to a new server.

    I have set the backup to run every night at 9pm to back up to a external hard drive that is plugged into the server by USB.

    The backups are taking so long its just taken 50 minutes to back up 1GB of a 400GB share.

    Can anybody please give me some information regarding this. The Server is a HP Proliant ML350 G6.

    Thank You in advance.

    I have seen the below on another website from a simple google search but when i have looked into our bios on the server i just cant see were to make this change.


    "I have fixed the problem. It turns out that HP Proliant servers default to USB 1.1 ports for some LILO legacy stuff. I changed this in the bios of one of the two of my windows server 2008 servers and a 138GB backup now finished in 37 minutes. This is good for us as it is much better than 23 hours"

    I have now fixed this well sort of. I have removed Hyper V from my server and everything is backing up fine and taking 2 hours to do a full back up.
