Re: How to get the best performance

Hi Adrian, Thank you very much, so for all new(ish) CPUs particular instruction sets and cache don't really feed into it, it's purely clock speed? As the 7700K has a base of 4.2GHz and the 7302P has a base of 3.0GHz, should I expect noticeably slower compression (high compression and encryption) rat...

Re: How to get the best performance

Hi Adrian, Apologises for the delay. I hit a problem, due to using Samba, there was no way for Backup4All to access the last change information, so had to do a complete scan of the data for every increment. As such I've changed what I'm doing to store a copy on a ReFS inside the VM. Use 1: -Source: ...

How to get the best performance

Hi, I'm trying to build a file server with Backup4all as the central backup solution. As far as I can tell Backup4all uses a single processor core when backing up for all the hard work of encrypting and compressing. On a i7 7700K with 24GB RAM spare while the back up is running and no other taxing j...

Re: VSS Shadow Copy and Samba

Hi All, I'm still not sure if Backup4all will work with VSS over Samba. However for those that are looking at doing something simlar to me (backing up from a Linux based file server). This appears to be more than possible, I've used ZFS and it's native snapshot system. Created a bash script to creat...

VSS Shadow Copy and Samba

Hi, Before I ask my question here is some context. I wish to run a home office style file server and 'home lab' using Ubuntu Server 20.4, on this I'll have a Windows Server 2019 or/and Windows 10 Pro as guest VM(s) . The file server will contain snapshots and samba shares for the PCs/devices on the ...

Re: Understanding Cloud Backup

Hi Adrian, Thank you for confirmation on the recommended size and the way increments and differentials work. I might well be overly simplifying a complex process here. As far as I'm aware (please correct me if I'm wrong) but the way CRC works for file validation is it reads all bits in a file and us...

Re: Understanding Cloud Backup

Hi Adrian, Thank you for your quick response and clarifications. That sounds really good! I can use the file splitting part to also give a rough indication of progress (which is all anyone probably needs) as well as managing temporary storage requirements. Is there any particular split size you woul...

Understanding Cloud Backup

Hi, I'm new here so please be gentle. I'm looking for a backup system to use with Microsoft OneDrive Personal. I currently have about 800GB of slow moving data, with about 40GB per year to add. As far as I can tell this is how the Backup4All works for this: 1) Create a backup in a temporary folder. ...
