Hello, I've done a few backups to the cloud and it looks like it's running smoothly. I'd like to create new backup set and have a couple questions. First, here's what I want to do. I'd like to create a cloud backup that will go back to all the new files in the last 2 weeks. So at the start, I'd have 2 weeks of files and then each day thereafter it would backup any new or altered files for the last 2 weeks. At some point this would become a large backup so I'd also like to set it so every 2 months it starts over with a fresh set of "the past 2 weeks". This is for emergency backup only. I do have a backup that has all of our files but it is very large and in an emergency it wouldn't be prudent to retrieve the entire backup as about 80% of it, while still in use, I have offsite that I can easily get. Mac OS 10.7.5 Retrospect v.13 Any help would be appreciated. Randy
I have Retrospect 11 installed, on windows 2008 r2 server. Incremental backups seem to be defaulting to full backup + Normal backup using DFS_DecJan_2016 at 1/9/2017 9:00 PM (Execution unit 1) Using thorough rebuild 1/9/2017 9:00:08 PM: Finished scanning backup set data files To Backup Set DFS_DecJan_2016-7... - 1/9/2017 9:00:01 PM: Copying H on lr-dfs Using Instant Scan 1/9/2017 9:00:54 PM: Found: 170,040 files, 16,373 folders, 179.6 GB 1/9/2017 9:01:05 PM: Finished matching 1/9/2017 9:01:38 PM: Copying: 90,924 files (123.8 GB) and 0 hard links 1/10/2017 12:06:45 AM: Building Snapshot... 1/10/2017 12:06:47 AM: Copying properties for 16,373 folders 1/10/2017 12:07:10 AM: Finished copying properties for 16,373 folders and 0 files 1/10/2017 12:07:17 AM: Copying Snapshot: 2 files (46.9 MB) 1/10/2017 12:07:34 AM: Snapshot stored, 46.9 MB LmGet: ndex = 0 < 1 and 139 others 1/10/2017 12:07:54 AM: Execution completed successfully Completed: 90924 files, 123.8 GB Performance: 686.5 MB/minute Duration: 03:07:52 (00:03:17 idle/loading/preparing) - 1/10/2017 12:07:54 AM: Copying M on lr-dfs Using Instant Scan 1/10/2017 12:09:13 AM: Found: 150,567 files, 20,219 folders, 158.1 GB 1/10/2017 12:09:19 AM: Finished matching 1/10/2017 12:09:54 AM: Copying: 1,178 files (224.2 MB) and 0 hard links 1/10/2017 12:10:28 AM: Building Snapshot... 1/10/2017 12:10:30 AM: Copying properties for 20,219 folders 1/10/2017 12:10:53 AM: Finished copying properties for 20,219 folders and 0 files 1/10/2017 12:11:00 AM: Copying Snapshot: 2 files (46.1 MB) 1/10/2017 12:11:07 AM: Snapshot stored, 46.1 MB 1/10/2017 12:11:18 AM: Execution completed successfully Completed: 1178 files, 224.2 MB, with 7% compression Performance: 353.9 MB/minute Duration: 00:03:23 (00:02:44 idle/loading/preparing) 1/10/2017 12:11:28 AM: Execution completed successfully Total performance: 685.3 MB/minute with 0% compression Total duration: 03:11:11 (00:06:03 idle/loading/preparing) The full backup vice incremental occur on different shares at different times and intervals. I am not able to figure this one out. Thanks for any input.
rsleegers posted a topic in Server, SBS and Multi ServerI run a transfer backup once a week to a removable drive. This has worked well for quite a while as all clients will fit on one drive (500GB). However, since enabling block level incremental backup my backups no longer fit. I am selecting "Transfer all recent Snapshots" (the most recent snapshot for each source) for the script. When I browse the snapshots I see multiple copies of a file, and checking properties sometimes indicates the size on disk is small (indicating a change-only backup), but at times nearly the entire file size appears copied more than once. I only want the most recent backup. Are these two features incompatible?
