Wd anywhere backup is so slow

Hi all,

I’ve been trying to backup a folder of about 70GB with WD anywhere backup. It has been running for six days now and it is still at 60GB. Anyone has any clues… I’ve noticed that there are verifying procedures that are painfully slow. A bit more detail: WD anywhere backup is 4.5; on win7, running avast antivirus free and the backup disk WD sharespace on an 8TB RAID1.
