Back up and Restore

Hi I'm currently in the process of backing up to an external hard drive. This process started at 2330 last night 06/11/09. Its now 0804 in the morning (07/11/09) and its only at 42%!!. This involves backing up around 200gb of data and a 60gb system image. My question is should it be taking this long??????? :confused: Oh and yes I am newbie so apologies if this is a stupid question!
