Backing up Photoscenery files

Recommended Posts

Hello All,


(Moderators - If this topic is in the wrong place please move it to the correct forum)


I use P3D 3.4 almost exclusively G.A. over Photoscenery with Autogen added. I fly from medium sized addon airports to similar throughout Western Europe. The programs and data are spread over 1) SSD system drive C: 120 gb 2) SSD program and some scenery files on drive D: 450 gb 3) Photoscenery on SSD drive E: 250 gb and 4) The bulk of the Photo scenery files on hard drive F: 1 TB.


In all about 2 TB on my Windows 7 flightsim computer. Backing up files is now a nightmare. I use Paragon 2015 backup utility which is just about OK for the smaller disks but the 1 TB filled with tiny .agn files in vast quantities causes the program to BSD after backing up 200 gb or so.


I have downgraded the cpu speed, the computer is not overheating etc. nor is it being used during the backup. The machine generally is very stable.


Does anyone have a solution or recommendation for a more robust backup utility?


Any comment much appreciated as the thought of re-installing 2 TB of scenery makes me shudder.


Kind regards
