we make backups of our VM's to 2 different types of storage. An NTFS volume on a SAN for fast backups/restores and USB-HD's (USB 2.0) for safe-keeping offsite.
The backups to USB-HD's are slow, so slow that they're interfering with other scheduled backup/replica jobs. This, I know now, is due to the fact that the jobs are configured to make "Reverse Incremental" backups. See Exchange backup speed
for more info.
I would like to know what steps I need to take to change the jobs from "Reverse Incremental" to regular incrementals. Does the change mean I have to start my jobs all over again, or can I change the method without destroying my current backups in te process?
Thanks in advance.
