large # of files, extremely slow to start backup

Trying Backup4All on an XP machine with a very large # of files. I watched it for a couple of hours, and it was still "Estimating" and calculating the # of files to backup. When I woke up this AM it was 10.5 hours into it and still "Estimating", though it said it was "updating the catalog". No files...

Re: Very large backup - will splitting increase performance?

NTFS. FAT32 does not support larger than 4GB files I believe, so I don't think it would even work in my described setup. Can you tell me what resources would be recommended for a single file that large (240GB)? I'm trying to find out if we would see better performance by splitting the file into smal...

Re: Very large backup - will splitting increase performance?

Thanks. We have already disable compression since the files being backed up are not very compressible.

My concern is about the size of the file, and whether or not to split it. How large is large? How much RAM should I need to handle the 240GB backup file?

Very large backup - will splitting increase performance?

We are backing up about 240GB to a USB hard drive. Currently takes about 7 hours to complete a full backup.

The resulting file is a ~240GB Zip file. I'm wondering if this is a good idea? Any advantage to splitting the Zip file to, say 1 or 2GB chunks?

Thanks

Re: cannot send email notifications through Microsoft Online hosted Exchange

Port 465 will not work as Microsoft Online only allows port 587. I believe the fact that Outlook works with the same settings proves that my settings are correct and that the problem lies with Backup4all. Since Backup4all worked for us with our previous email provider and also with gmail I can only ...

Re: cannot send email notifications through Microsoft Online hosted Exchange

Gmail works with those settings at port 465, but NOT at port 587.

I would like to get this working with our Microsoft Online account if possible.

Any further suggestions?

cannot send email notifications through Microsoft Online hosted Exchange

We just migrated our email over to Microsoft Online (hosted Exchange). Trying to reconfigure notifications but the test email is not going out. Our previous email provider used an unsecure SMTP at port 25. Microsoft Online uses TLS/SSL at port 587. We are using: Server: smtp.mail.microsoftonline.com...
