Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. Let's get started!

A 30 hour backup is not normal. Are you backing up a lot of information? (>50 gbs)
Has this happened before? Is this your first backup?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

no it hasn't been this long before it is normal back up time

Expert:  Josh replied 2 years ago.

Please try restarting your computer and running the backup again. It is possible that there was a glitch or program preventing it from backing up properly.
