Was a little put off by the quick recommendation to just try the latest build, but I just ran through the upgrade and needed to post these results. Same tests running the restore, wow what a difference.
30GB of about 10,000 files/folders from a Linux LVM Virtual machine.
B&R - 126.96.36.1992
"Restore but Keep" took only 18 minutes, before it took 2.5 hours!!
"Copy to ..." took 30 minutes, before it took 45 minutes
Really amazing improvement here, not really sure what has changed, didnt see anything in the release notes. I'm really excited and happy to be able to finally feel confident to use VEEAM as a viable backup/restore solution for our large scale Linux file servers, finally! Awesome work there on whatever created this massive improvement.
