I did a backup yesterday of AEM 6.2, a simple AEM quickstart. Through the JMX interface:

URL: http://localhost:4502/system/console/jmx/com.adobe.granite%3Atype%3DRepository (startBackup(java.lang.String target))

I was watching the backup progress before leaving for the day using:

http://localhost:4502/libs/granite/backup/content/admin.html

It was at 20% around 3:30 pm EST. I came in this morning, and it showed that it had completed at 23:26:16 EST

Question: Should I expect 8 hrs for a backup?

Question: Should I expect more than 8 hours?

Question: What should I be telling my customer? (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada)

Thanks

P.S. It did appear to work. I was able to unzip it and use it.

Yes. Snapshot backup is indeed cloning/copying your entire crx-quickstart folder.
