Before I decided to format my disk, Try do defrag with a "real" tool instead of the basic defrag that come from Windows. I used Diskkeeper. This tool indicate that 100% of my disk was fragmented. It was a totally different result from Windows defrag tool....
After the defrag with the new tool my analyze problem after my backup is corrected. The analyze now take only 30min instead of 4 hours. Plus a speed up my backup.
Now I understand that Windows default defrag tool is really a bad tool.
Thanks for your help guys,
I had the same issue: running backups to a network drive and the verify took 12+ hours and then lately, 48+ hours before cancelling. What was puzzling me, though, was that for a 200G backup, the verify bit count was ever increasing to over a TB before I finally just cancelled the job.
But thanks for that solution. I downloaded the trial version of Diskeeper Server Edition and clicked on the optimized button for my 4TB RAID 10 drive. It was finished in 5 minutes.
I ran a backup last night and whadayahknow... it verified within a resonable (expected) period of time!
