Acronis validation

Posted on 2011-10-07

I have a storage server and all my backup plans and validation go very fast. We purchased a NAS to be stored offsite and the backup takes a little longer but the validation is just ridiculous. Both devices have the same plans running on different times. Is validation important?

    Assisted Solution

    If you restore two or three random files manually after a backup, and open them using the application they were created with, then no.

    Accepted Solution

    i never used it
    and never faced any problems
    randomly you can map any of the remote backup files to explore it
    that confirms if the backup is valid
