Fresh Win7 install image only 10GB?

I just did a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro 64bit and I created an image of it so I wouldnt have to reinstall in the future (just restore the image). I did a System backup and the resulting file is only 10GB and it was created in less than 5 minutes. My system drive is currently 30GB. I know the Backupper software uses compression but 10GB seems to good to be true for compression. Plus, the time it took to create the image.

Does this seem normal? How can I verify it truly created a 1:1 image backup?

    Hello techmnky,

    You don't have to worry, the backup speed of our software is about 50-80MB per second. And since your OS is newly configured, you have a good system, so the backup process is very smoothly. To confirm that whether you have created a 1:1 image backup, you can mount the image as virtual drive and then you can explore the content in windows explorer, please refer to this tutorial:

    If you have any other qustions or suggestions please feel free to let us know.
