Cloud Backup, slow broadband, new files only

Post by BillDodd »

My Client has a file system of about 100GBs, a slow broadband < 8MBits Upload about 0.25 MBits. They want Cloud or FTP backup, there is no way this can be initiated without about a months upload. What I think can happen is that I can take a backup to a attached USB hard drive. Draw a line and then send all the changed files / blobs/ whatever to Azure / S3 / FTP pot daily.

The company files including PST's do not change more than 5Mb a day.

I appreciate that I will not be able to mix the two backups (Harddrive and Cloud) and will need an intelligent restore (human) system.

Can the above be implemented using Backup4All?

You can run the first Full backup to an USB drive, move that backup to Cloud, then continue the incremental backups from the original computer directly to Cloud as 5 MB/day will be uploaded shortly.

Follow the same steps as described in this article, only use cloud instead of FTP: ... p-239.html
