Hi Marius,

The time it takes to backup depends on how much stuff you want to backup, and on the backup tool you use. :)
There is no "okay - or not" ... Every user case is different (as always) ! Sometimes you are asking questions ... :D

I mean if the backup takes long enough to overlap the business hours next day,is this ok? What to perform in order to reduce this time?

Hi Marius,

A backup shouldn't take days (normally) - except you have tons to backup.
As I said, it depends on which tool you use and how you have configured it.
Clonezilla for example lets you choose between compression methods ... :)
