    Since an Image Backup shall include the Oracle home directory, the OraInventory directory, the oratab file, and Windows registries on that node plus a cold backup of the target instnace... I'll say you have to shutdown your instance and start using the copy command ;-)

    How long to copy 100 GB?... it depends...
    ...are you making the copy on a disk that it's visible from your base server?
    ...are you moving the 100 Gigs over a network?... how fast is your network?

    I'm confident you can go ahead and answer your own question now.
