Is my hdd cloning time too long?

Hello,

is 27 min hdd cloning time normal with following system or have i built something wrong?
Image file is 80GB. (two bootable system partitions)

* Motherboard Ecs gf7050VT-M5 (sata 2)
ECS > GF7050VT-M5 (V1.0/V1.0A)

* Hdd that i clone is Seagate ST3160812AS (sata2)
* HDD where image goes is HD642JJ (sata2) ( i have here also system partition)
Both hdds are connected to one computer.

* For cloning i use Acronis trueimage 2016 boot cd.
* I boot from internal dvd-writer TS-H552U. It is ide drive and sisoft sandra shows that it is ata-33.

I have win7 ultimate 32bit sp1 plus updates.

Welcome to our forum mupc.

Hard drive to hard drive using USB 2.0 the time for 80 gig sounds very good at 27 min.
I haven't done a hard drive to hard drive in so long I can't remember the exact time it use to take.

Why is this. Like 10 minutes plus and it still says recycling. It should only take a second. Is it bad to let it continue at its own pace or should I restart the PC and try it again?
