iPad is taking forever to back-up and sync

Starting a few days ago my iPad starting taking forever to back-up and sync. Click sync and often wait 30 or 40 minutes.

I updated to the new firmware yesterday hoping that might resolve the issue but set it to sync his morning and 15 minutes later its about 20% of the way through backing up.

Anybody else having similar problems?

While on vacation I loaded 1300 pictures on my iPad, along with with the videos and apps already on the device. All in all I have over 40GB on my iPad.

I did a sync, which starts with a backup - this took 8 hours (my PC is a bit older and not all that fast). The actual sync only took only a few minutes.

Now I'm dreading the next time I need to sync.
Does anyone know if the entire iPad backed up each time, or only the changes?
