to a nMove catalog files

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I know it´s a stupid question, but how do I move my catalog files from D2D and D2Tape to a newly added drive?

I don't understand. Are you trying to do a backup set transfer?

 

You can copy catalog files in Windows explorer to the disk of your choice, if that is what you are asking. Just double click on the catalog after it has been moved.

That was it. Thank you.

 

Another question:

 

I have transfered a backup to a new disk, but the size/files are not identical. I have rerun the transfer but no new files was copied.

 

Original backup set:

113,7Gb 82.251 files

483 sessions

18 snapshots

 

New backup set:

112.3Gb 80.214 files

482 sessions

11 snapshots

 

Both backup sets are identical regarding grooming which is set to remove backups older than 5.

 

Why the difference?

Any reply to this?

Did you do a backup set transfer for a snapshot transfer?

 

The transfer will use matching too so that it only copies unique files and not multiple identical copies of files.

I did a "transfer backup sets" under Tools.

 

Acording to the manual it should transfer the complete backup set so they are identical. Then why are they not identical?

Matching between backup sets may be filtering more data then matching during the original backup. You can disable matching and do the transfer again if you want.
