>my BLOB records are plain text phrases, somewhere between 1 and 400 char-s , containing setup information (in Delphi I save a TStringList to file and I backup that file in my database). 


>My question was about saving these tables with gbak -v (verbose) where I can see the time spent to backup / restore each table. Can I speedup this process somehow ? 


You could try to include the –g switch, not as a permanent solution, but if things become considerably faster with –g, then your problem is with transaction handling and not directly related to the backup or blobs.
