Ah, I think I had missed mentioning that I'm using the IFL CUI as a bootable CD, not the GUI version within Linux itself. That won't let me mount an NTFS drive.
Yes, I'm using a USB 3.0 port, cable, and device.

I just tried an IFD bootable CD and a restore (using BIOS) took twice as long as IFL did.

Ofc you can mount an NTFS partition with IFL CUI.

In the menu choose "Exit to command prompt"
Type "dpmount" (without quotation marks)
Choose your NTFS partition...

Manipulating and recreating an .iso file that does mounting automatically is also possible.
TeraByte has quite a lot howto's, e.g.: http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/kb/category.php?id=58

And read about the ntfs-3g driver (google).

Thanks for the hint on dpmount, highend. I mounted the USB drive partition under dpmount but there was no change in performance.
Incidentally, I tried IFD again but this time using BIOS (Direct) and the estimated time to complete was over 1 hour 22 min. Guess I'll stick with IFL.

Thanks all for your input.
