File Copy

Post by Mr_OCD » Mar 12, 2010 1:40 pm

Hi,

I am using file copy to move vbk / vrb files from SAN on to a physical disk for DR. Is there anyway we can run a sequental / incremental copy once the initial file copy has been created?

So far have 300GB for first copy but the second file copy just creates a second copy rather than update existing (if that makes sense!)

Any ideas appreciated!

Hi,

the .VBK is the most upto date file so you only really need to copy that one for the latest backup state.

Hello Scott,

If you need to perform incremental copies, you can consider using DFS-R or RSYNC as described in the following thread.

Thank you!

Thanks... the file copy only allows you to specify folders not files hence the problem... :)
