The very first backup after installation will take the longest and can run from a few minutes to 48 hours based on the amount of data you plan to backup and the speed of your Internet connection.

On an average computer and Internet connection, FileHopper Plus will backup 10-15 GB per 24-hour period.

Once the initial backup is completed, daily backups typically run in less than 15 minutes and, in most cases, you won’t even notice it.

FileHopper Plus performs differential backups, which means that it only backs up portions of your files that have changed since the last time they were backed up. This saves lots of time, bandwidth, and storage space.
