Is there an option to NOT put the backup into a ZIP file (or anything similar)?

Post by CraigD »

In my initial testing it wasn't a problem to have the backup saved into a .zip file. As my testing progressed and I included more and more folders into my backup, the resulting .zip file began to take longer and longer to open. Once I have the backup running the way I want (with the required folders selected as part of the backup), the .zip file will take too long to open. If there are no other options then I will have to abandon my testing. I am testing another product that simply copies the backed-up files to a file system folder. That would be my preference.

Hi,

The Mirror backup type in Backup4all will copy all source files to destination, without zipping them.
To change the backup type of the current backup job, please open Backup Properties->Type page.
Select Mirror and press Save.
The current backup catalog will be deleted and a new Mirror backup will be executed.
