An HOUR? That's about 4-6 times too long. I back up a 2100's internal
memory, a 20MB card and a 6MB card in about 10-15 minutes over Ethernet
using a Farallon card. That's a full backup (I never do incrementals).
I am using a G3/250 PowerBook,though. Perhaps the emulator is slowing
you down a lot, or you need to give it more RAM. I'd say it's more
likely the latter.

I have NCU set to 60MB. (You should give it at least the amount of RAM
it defaults to, PLUS the amount of RAM and RAM Cards your Newton has, or
preferrably more.)

The time you state was the time I was getting over LocalTalk (I don't
even want to THINK about serial!)
