It took about 8 hours to create the backup and another 8 hours to restore on the new hard drive. Compression used was gzip. Average backup/restore speed was about 125MB/min.
Even though functionality wise things worked flawlessly, I will most probably not consider using this tool again because it does not appear to use the I/O paths available to the max. I would have expected read/write of at least 5MB/s. This way things just take too much time.
Still: thank you for making this tool available and I do hope you are able to make it faster.
