Performance of recovery operation
On the Performance tab you can configure the following settings:
Changing the priority of a backup or recovery process can make it run faster or slower (depending on whether you raise or lower the priority), but it can also adversely affect the performance of other running programs. The priority of any process running in a system, determines the amount of CPU usage and system resources allocated to that process. Decreasing the operation priority will free more resources for other CPU tasks. Increasing backup or recovery priority may speed up the process by taking resources from the other currently running processes. The effect will depend on total CPU usage and other factors.
You can set up the operation priority:
- Low (enabled by default) – the backup or recovery process will run slower, but the performance of other programs will be increased.
- Normal – the backup or recovery process will have the equal priority with other processes.
- High – the backup or recovery process will run faster, but the performance of other programs will be reduced. Be aware that selecting this option may result in 100% CPU usage by Acronis True Image Home 2011.
