    So I had to do a battery pull this morning because I was running a nand backup that had been going for several hours. Is this normal? I have only done a couple, but they were both done in 30 minutes or less.

    I deleted the files from the backup since it was incomplete and it was damn near 1 GB of data.

    - What is the longest a nand should take?
    - How large can they get?

    Is anyone else seeing 800MB+ nand backups or is it just my phone/ROM/recovery? I've started another one after clearing some space on my sdcard and have had it going for another 90 minutes and it still hasn't finished.

    I am using the newest version of Amon Ra.

    That's way too long.

    Have you tried a backup using Clockwork to see if it's the same result?

    No...I was hoping that I wouldn't have to flash Clockwork because it was not recommended based on my root method. Here is the link to the method I used to root a month ago...it has been updated since then but there is still a warning about Clockwork as of this morning.
    [ROOT][GUIDE] HBoot 2.02/2.10 SOFF - There Will Be Root - Upd. 01.22.11 - xda-developers


    EDIT: Trying to do the backup on clockwork 2.6...will update when complete

    Mine takes about 15 minutes and is usually like 2gb on my sd card. I always move them to my computer so I have that room back on my card.

    I use clockword mod, and my backups take about 15 min (a lifetime for me) and takes about 800 MB - 1 GB of memory.

    About 10 minutes and 800 MB is what it ended up being. Amon Ra 1.8 and CW 2.6 work for me.

    Amon 2.1 did not work.

    I am staying away from anything CW newer than 2.6
