Creating Remote DB - Remote Is Taking A Long Time To Create

I have created an RDB that is 1.1GB.  I moved it to the remote system, double clicked on the RDB file and the system has been running for 30 minutes with very little progress.  This may help:

 

1.  The original db is on a Windows 7 32 bit system

2.  The remote db and ACT software is on a Windows 7 64 bit system

 

I am going to walk away and just let it run. 

 

Does this sound right for how long it is taking for the initial RDB to process?

If anti-virus software is running, then yes that time frame is normal.

 

I often disable the AV when restoring an RDB to shorten the time it takes.

Thanks, Ben.  I went out to my grandson's little league game and it was done when I returned.
