Backup Exec: Backup speeds
Posted on 2007-10-12
Ok i am currently working with BackExec 10d, and a sony AIT-LIB-81 tape library. We are performing backups to tapes from numerous servers around the network. The tape drive is attached via SCSI and all servers on the network are opertaing full duplex 1000mbps. I am backing up arond 202Gigs of files nearly everynight. I know i should go through it and only backup the files that get changed everyday. But im not the boss and the boss wants it everynight, full backup. Anyways i have roughly 202 gigs of files. It's taking around 16-18 hours to backup those files from servers around the network to the tape drive. Is there any way of speeding this process up?
