2.1 TB takes a week ...

Post by danico »

I have a client that has lots of images and lots of data. The total is 2.1 TB which, of course we need to backup. I would like to do a mirror to multiple disks per week. The problem is, it takes a week to get the first copy over to the disk. If I do a straight robocopy it takes two days, still very slow but not a week. Any suggestions how I can speed this up or possible seed the drives and just do updates to them after the seeding?

Thanks everyone.

What was the final resolution to this issue?

Were there changes to the B4A job parameters which improved the end-to-end time?

I would also like an update to this. I am new to this software and I am very unimpressed with the speed. I am backing up from a SSD to an external SSD as a test, about 200gb, and it should only take 2 hours or less.
