The term "Backup" means the methods and processes involved to copy computer data (system data as well as application data) to media other than the ones where the data originally live (disk, tape, optical, cloud). "Restore" in turn means the methods and processes involved in data recovery, i. e., bringing back copied computer data to their original location. Backup/Restore primarily serves as a means of protection against data loss, be it due to disaster, corruption or sabotage. It can also be used for recovering data from an earlier point in time and even for cloning machines or applications. There is a wide variety of backup/restore software available, from expensive commercial products to free or open source tools.

What would be a good SAN recommendation to back-end (3) Dell R440 servers running VMware or Hyper-V?  Solution is not only for running VM load, but disk backups and Azure copy. 80tb would cover storage load that includes double growth.  And what would be best connectivity option for them?

we had a server crash but we had backups. The problem the bare metal restore is not working properly and the hyper v image is way above my head. Looking to see if someone has experience in doing the bare metal restore with appassure or the hyper v import. Thanks in advance

Looking for a backup solution for multiple servers at multiple clients. We have a 40tb server with ftp at our office as the hosting server. Need to be able to do incremental backups, restore via web would be nice, the clients need to be able to access a web interface and see their backups, logs etc. Email notifications are essential. We tried duplicati but it crashes on most clients (files in use maybe). Trying URBackup but its slow. Hyper-V support is a plus as well as MS SQL backups. Free or Paid is fine.

Hello

restored from an  image drives letters are incorrect. the system reserved partition is assigned to c drive instead of blank  and the c partition was assigned to d drive.

have access to command prompt is there a way to remove the c: from system reserved so its blank and change d drive to c

Need to provide our hardware group with size information for Oracle RMAN database backups.  What is a good method to determine size and growth?  We would like to keep 4 backups and have archivelog mode turned on.  Current size of database is 850 GB, e.g. total of allocated for all tablespaces.

We are planning to migrate (not upgrade) the Account and Contact data from a CRM 4.0 version to D365 CE using a tool like Scribe Insight.  A new D365 environment will be established and a mapping template created to determine which CRM fields will be mapped to which D365 fields.  The jscript will be added after the data is migrated and then tested.

We are looking to avoid the stepped  upgrade process from CRM 4 to CRM 2011 to CRM 2013 to CRM 2015 to CRM 2016 to Dynamics 365 CE.  We are planning to use a simple 1 to 1 mapping. using the SQL connector for the CRM 4.0 source and the Scribe D365 CE Adapter for inserting (or upserting) records.

Please advise of anything we should be aware of and any possible problems that can occur.

We have an issue where our backups are exceeding the size of the actual sites they're backing up. Actual SharePoint site is circa 312 GB, the actual backup transferred in total is now 503 GB.

We're backing up 11 SharePoint 'Communication Sites' and usually we just see small incremental changes in the daily transferred size.

However, some days we will see a massive jump of 20 to 60 GB's transferred from one site only, even though that site hasn't had any major changes. It seems to be backing up the whole site again instead of incremental.

Has anyone come accross this before.

Hi There, we are using DPM 2010. Using DPM we need some support to solve problems. But, we are not able to find any company that has a DPM specialist in Holland. I wonder if someone knows someone or maybe can help us with some issues.
If this is not a question which I can post here, then I would be helped to get a advice on the correct forum.
Many thanks in advance

If I create a Windows Recovery USB and boot from it:

1) does it contain the appropriate network drivers?

2)I I have backups (C: drive, program/data drive)  on a mapped network drive. Is there anyway to automatically (or via batch file) map to that and keep in on the recovery drive?

3) Is there any situation where the recovery USB along with a complete backup of programs and C: will not be enough?

Thanks.

I have a 3-node Hyper-V HA cluster running Server 2019. I have everything identical, except I am trying to solve two problems:
I am pinging from a laptop on the same network as the nodes. Node 1 returns pings with higher-than-normal latency compared with the other two nodes- Normally they are <1ms-1ms. Node 1 returns a range from 1-40ms with drops about .5%-1% of the time. All nodes plugged into the same switches. Each node has 8 network adapters, 6 are teamed as "cluster" and two are teamed as "backup". The ping times are weird when the backups are not running, not sure about during backup windows. All four virtual adapters on all three nodes have statically-assigned MAC addresses that are unique and were set up to address other issues that Microsoft has acknowledged are actual issues. The 4 adapters on each server with these static MAC's are the two teams I mentioned and the Hyper-V switch associated with each team- So we have a vEthernet Cluster, a vEthernet Backups, Cluster, and Backups, each team is assigned to a Hyper-V switch. Each of the switch adapters is assigned a static IP address on the two networks- for example, node 1 is 192.168.1.95 on Cluster and 192.168.3.95 on Backups. Both networks are routable to each other.
On node three, I have a weird problem, andit might be related- ipconfig /all shows two IP addresses on the Cluster interface- 192.168.1.100 and 192.168.1.103. Both are statically assigned (No DHCP server on the 192.168.1.0/24 network). When I go …

Hi Experts,

How do I setup a task in Task Scheduler that should not be PWD depended?

Also I would like to receive an email if the task didn't run successfully.

Hi all!  I figured I would just throw this out there.  For small environments where they are not ready to invest in a server,  or even a RAID controller with mirrored drives for a dedicated Win10 computer "Acting" as a server.  What do you guys like for the best backup software.  It has to be super intuitive for people.  Acronis is great, but it totally throws people off I think, and although you can do an image backup, and restore individual files.  Has anyone seen anything that is a bit more intuitive that can do both file level and image backups.  So if you have a catastrophic drive failure you can boot from a flash drive replace the drive and put the image back, schedule image backups say monthly, but do a daily file level?
Thanks guys!

-      The server was infected this past weekend with a crypto virus from “rescuerr” the link explains which crypto virus my server and all workstations have
https://www.pcrisk.com/removal-guides/16113-medusalocker-ransomware

I have a Windows server 2016 standard running on an HPE ProLiant DL 360 G8
-      it is two volumes on hardware array (C + D drives)
-      it is a standalone server running a specific application. It is not in a domain environment
-      I'm using Carbonite to back up the database to the cloud
-      I'm also using the built-in Windows server backup to create daily bare-metal backups. I confirmed the last backup was successful
-      I do not have a rescue disk. But I do have the original Windows server 2016 DVD
Questions
-      since this server has been compromised and there really aren't any tools to clean the server, is it best to boot from the Windows server 2016 DVD and format the two volumes prior to performing the bare-metal recovery.
-      Recommendations for recovery

Thanks!

I'm trying to boot a HP Prodesk 400G5 PC to a Legacy Acronis 2016 USB. However I get the following issue every time Acronis loads:

"Acronis Loader: Unable to run Boot Menu. Press Enter to continue..."

I then press enter, it flashes the blue Acronis splash screen and then shows

"Please press enter to activate this console..."

I have tried:
- ensuring that secureboot is disabled and legacy is enabled.
- disabling UEFI in Boot order
- disabling fast boot

I have also loaded Acronis on other devices and can use it no problem elsewhere. However any HP Prodesk 400G5 I have tried it will not load.

Any ideas on what could cause this?

Thanks

Hi,
We are having issues with one of our NETGEAR ReadyNAS Drive. Model ReadyNAS516. The backup jobs are always in Queue with one job in " InProgress Status" for 5-6 hours. Once you cancel that job then the other backup jobs starts running. This is happening daily.
 Logs are not giving any useful information. Can someone help on this urgently.

Testing managed backups in SQL2014 on an unused development database in order to take advantage of Azure storage accounts.  The problem is I must have set something up incorrectly because the managed backup process if forcing a full backup of the database approximately every 3hours with log backups approximately every 15 minutes.
This is way too much traffic for an unused dev database and makes me nervous to implement on a production database that will obviously have some actual changes every hour of every day.   This would presumably cause even more traffic and therefore costs in Azure.  Not to mention the performance drag that the SQL server will feel if it's running backups all the time.
Where can I look to help control and limit the number of full backups to once at night?
