Backing up millions of small files

Computer Helper
Last Modified: 2015-10-19
I have a doc imaging server that constantly receives files every minute.  These files are things like invoices, packing slips, ect.  They are very small in size but there are millions of them.

We are currently attempting to use DPM 2010 to do this but the replica stays inconsistant and cannot get a complete backup

Does anyone know of a the best way to do this?
