Hi bostjanc,

I noticed that support team proposed to change backup job's block size. Did that help? By tthe way, if you have an antivirus running on the same machine, kindly, make sure that VEB was added to the exclusion list.

Not any antivirus apps on that machine.
We are in phase of checking which block size suits the mosts, but it variate very much either we increase or decrease that number in registry, which is strange.

bostjanc,

If possible, test performance of the backup to local destination. Is it far better that backup to shared folder?
