I have a virtual server with 1.7 TB capacity but only 400 GB of Data. The backup software is Trilead. I don't understand why the backup takes 60 ours to complete and 1.4 TB on the backup external disk for only 400 GB of data.

One thing you'll want to tweak is backup compression which significantly reduces the size of the backup image (if your guest isn't using much of its allocated storage).

By default this is disabled.

To enable, when setting your backup settings for a guest, under the Connection tab check Compress data during transfer and Keep data compressed at destination. File level restore will NOT be available.
