Petek Posted August 13, 2009 Report Share Posted August 13, 2009 Hi. Wonder if you can help. We are utilising Retro Multi to backup remote sites to replace another application. We have the ability to restore the remote sites' backup locally or to another machine within the site the Retro server is located and need to pre-seed the backup for the remote site, as in one case its 250gig and the bandwidth between sites is far, far too low to do this from scratch across the wan. I've tried to do this by restoring to a local folder (e.g. "C") , and pointing the backup job at this, then changing the backup source to the be the client on the remote server, but Retro does not match any of the files that are already stored. The times and dates were maintained from the previous restore, so every single one cannot have changed, therefore I would expect at least a good percentage to have matched, and only needed a catchup backup, plus system state etc. I have "match source volumes to catalog file" and also "dont add duplicates to backup set" ticked in the client options. Can anyone help please or offer any advise to get Retro to really match the files in the seed backup set to the live client? Matching works fine for other backup sets created from scratch within Retro and the snapshot process works too. TIA Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
