Fastest safe settings

Hi
Love the program but been getting slow write speeds.

I'm backing up approx 570GB  to an external Maxtor M3 4GB drive over USB3 and getting average write speeds of 500 KB/s to 900 KB/s with the occasional peak to 6 MB/s for a split second in Task Manager Disk Transfer rate.

I've checked the drive with the usual disk tools and they show I should be getting much higher speeds.

Are they some settings I need to tweak?

Cheers
Chris

Under 1 MBps write speed is abnormal and as with any abnormally weird behavior the first thing to check is your antivirus. If you are running one, switch it off, as completely as possible, or at the very least white-list bvckup2.exe and source/backup locations with it.

See if this applies and let me know if it helps.
