NAS Backup backup size

Post by Erwin Linker »

Hi,

I'am testing with the NAS backup solution for our customers data shares. If possibly i want to have one job with multiple shares for the back-up, but i want to know what the back-up size is per share.

Backup:
- Share 1 \\Company1
- Share 2 \\company2
- Share 3 \\Company3

Can i find the back-up size per share through powershell?

This information is not available via PowerShell - you cannot find how much space a certain share occupies in multi-share backup file. Thanks!

Hi Vermin,

Is there another way to get the information?

No, but can you describe the use case you're trying to solve? May be we can propose some alternative. Thanks!

I can try :-)..

We have a multi tenant environment with multiple customers, so we have different customer shares one 1 file server. Some customers want a different retention policy than our default retenion policy of 7 days.

FileServer:
- \\fileserver01\shares\customer1$
- \\fileserver01\shares\customer2$
- \\fileserver01\shares\customer3$
- \\fileserver01\shares\customer4$ (wants a retetion of 31 day's)
- \\fileserver01\shares\customer5$ (wants a retetion of 14 day's and 2 month back-ups)

I thought that the NAS back-up could be a solution for this, and it is. But we want to bill our customers for that back-up data what they are using.
I can create a different job per customer and then read the size of the storage folder on the repository, but if there is a way to combine jobs it would be create.

With this type of requirement (bill tenants separately), you will need to have multiple NAS backup jobs indeed. Thanks!

Hoi Veremin,

For VB0365 there is a powershell command "Get-VBOUsageData -Organization *" is there a way to implement this also to the VBR powershell? I have a solution for the local back-up data but when i do a offload to a S3 bucket i have the same problem, that i can't find the size off the back-up.

I looks like you guy's have a solution from vbo365?

Those products create and store backups differently, so, the feature of one product cannot be easily transported to the other one. But thank you for the feedback; it's been noted.
