I have a client that wants have delta-level backup to external
drives attached to a Win2008 server.
The reason for this is that there are several large binary files (20-30gb) that need
to be copied while a very important service is stopped. VSS will not work for these
files (aka "open"), so a key software program must be temporarily shutdown. The belief
was that copying only delta-level changes to these big files would dramatically speed
up the process.
I have tested Syncrify. While it appears to function, the desired effect is exactly the opposite as what was hoped. Using Syncrify to match up & copy one of the big file (the versions where about two weeks apart) took more than 3 hours.
A simple full file copy takes just under an hour.
The folks at Synametrics basically told me it is an "unsupported configuration"
Does anyone know of a good product/solution?
