I became interested in trying IDrive’s Machine Backup Restore. Currently I have a Windows 10 IDDRIVEIMAGE sitting in my cloud account that measures 167GB. I plugged in a USB3 SSD and started the restore. After 2hrs 45min I had achieved 26% with 7hrs 18 min estimated remaining. Math seems to calculate 37Mbps download. I have a 200Mbps fiber connection that faithfully tests at 190-200Mbps. Curious what other folks have experienced for download speeds from IDrive? They claim they do not bandwidth throttle.
Maybe I should be content with 37 Mbps. Apparently cloud backup/restore services all have restoration bottlenecks. Tom’s Guide review
