Windows Server Backup - without VSS

Post by tommalt » Sep 19, 2019 3:34 pm

Hi,

is it possible to backup a large volume (over 64TB) on a physical Windows 2016 server with the Windows Agent from Backup and Replication 9.5?

VSS will fail due to the size of the volume, so can we run a backup job without using VSS please?

many thanks,

Tom

Hello,
and welcome to the forums.

Unfortunately that's not possible with the agent. The only workaround I can suggest is to wait for NAS backup and do a backup via SMB protocol.

Best regards,
Hannes

Hi,
end of 2019 is the plan (as always: it ships when it's done)

Best regards,
Hannes
