Suggestion on improving speed during snapshot


Recommended Posts

Could you remove searching, (quering, whatever your doing) of files and folders that were not in the selections during the snapshot phase.


Example; why does the backup waist so much time Snapshot'ing the "Temporary Internet Files" folder when I've excluded it from being in the backup in the first place??? It's not like I expect it to be there when I need to DR the system.

This annoys a lot of people but there are good reasons for it. The snapshot takes an image of the entire source volume no matter what was actually backed up. Retrospect needs to do this in order to do full restores. These scans are the reason the user does not have to manage full vs incremental backups.


Hope that helps
