slow backups


I have recently installed Comodo backup and think that it’s another great free tool from Comodo. I especially like the fact that I can choose my backups to run only on week days to save my work data and that the backups can be compressed in zip format. Before I tried Comodo backup I was using WinBackup (free version). This software can only save backups in its proprietary format and does not allow me to schedule which days of the week the backup should run.

I would like to continue using Comodo for the above reasons but on comparison Comodo backup takes over 6 minutes longer to backup the same data as WinBackup (about 1GB) which takes about 2 and a half minutes! And that is without any compression!

Can anyone from Comodo explain how I can increase the speed of the backup process?
