To backup 1 folder it scans the entire volume


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to backup a single 20GB folder from my Xsan volume onto tape for longer term storage and so I can clear off space on the SAN. However when I select the folder and click go, it scans the entire volume before starting. This would be fine if it were a startup volume that I was backing up off of and took 5 minutes... But on a 35TB SAN volume, it takes about 9 hours to scan, and a few minutes to backup the 20GB. Is there any way to disable this unnecessary scanning?


I found this thread, but it never seems to have been answered or resolved, the OP just shrugged it off:



Since I'm testing right now with the trial software this kind of hinderance is a deal breaker for me.


Any ideas?
