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.

Hello EE,

I am working on a network drive migration task and all has been going well with this command which will copy source to the destination and keep all the permissions\ACLs intact and gives me a nice log file to review the results. This command does not mess up anything on the source but will mirror it to the destination which is what I want for time being:

robocopy "\source-server\share\folder" "\destination-server\share\folder" /zb /MT:32 /mir /copyall /dcopy:T /V /tee /LOG+:C:\temp\robocopylog.txt /r:0 /w:0

All is well :-) Until I realize that I have tiny window for the final copy before full cutover to the new storage.

Problem: command above is taking close to 31 hours to run for 9TB of data and my cutover time frame is only about 12 hours. I re-run the command every 48 hours to check for changes to the data on source to update the destination and it appears there are millions of small files which are slowing down the copy.

All the data is there just want to keep the destination up to date with new robocopy command and slim down the time without jeopardizing the data or permissions\ACLs.

I have narrowed down a couple folders I could exclude from these subsequent copies to shave down the 31 hours to roughly 9 hours by reviewing the data.

I have been trying out the /XD switch and cannot get it to work.

Here is a example of the /XD added to the command;

robocopy "\source-server\share\folder" "\destination-server\share\folder" /XD …

Hello,  It appears only a couple backup vendors support Nutanix.  We are migrating all our file shares over and I'm panicking because I don't know how we can backup the data.  Anyone else using Nutanix file shares with recommendations?

Hi ,
          In order to evaluate the renewal of tsm licenses, i need to analize the total amount of data backuped and restored in 2015/2016/2017. The format could be like this:

Year  | Action (backup or restore) | amount of restores/backups | Total amount of data in GB

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I have 4 node Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) cluster with two adapter. One for serving client and other one is for the Cluster only. In switch it is configured as trunk mode. The primary is serving PROD Vlan 172.16.0.0/24 subnet and secondary virtual adapter has 11.11.11.0/24 cluster only but no vlan been set but VLAN been enabled without IP set on the core switch.  In SCVMM 2016 of the virtual machines for the S2D cluster are getting the error as follows. Sometimes we are able to manage sometimes all options are disabled.
======================================
Error (13921)
The highly available virtual machine (VM03) is not supported by VMM because one or more of its network adapters is not configured correctly.
Recommended Action
Ensure that all of the virtual network adapters are either disconnected or connected to highly available virtual switches.
=============================================

The virtual switch is created, is there any document to verify the Virtual Network setup to fix this issue. Perhaps we are missing something or the VLAN gateway should be configured for the secondary adapter on Hosts.

This is annoying and giving big headache. But on other aspect all VM's are communicating and live migration works perfectly.  

Any suggestion and help appreciated.

I am running (first time) a cpanel (cloud Linux) server as a guest on esx6.5.

I want to increase the size of the hard drive, preferably the /home partition.

I know how to increase the hard drive allocated to the guest but what is the appropriate way to resize the visible hard drive on the guest and the  /home partition.

I know I could easily just add a secondary hard drive but would rather resize the /home if possible. Unfortunately my Linux knowledge is 'basic'

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I recently found a bunch of my cds of music I've gathered over a couple decades.  I have imported them all into my Macbook's iTunes.  I looked for a short time to see if iTunes can do what I want, but it seems like the files have to be physically on the devices to do this.  Or I have to turn on Home Sharing.  Meh.  Not really a solution I'm looking for.  I didn't see an option to put them in the cloud and then stream to my devices?  Did I miss that?

Ideally, I would like to put the files in the cloud and then access those songs from my devices.  Essentially, I'm asking for a way to stream my music, right?  I'm new to Plex and imagine that can do what I want it to if I install the Plex client on all my devices and buy Plex Pass, but wanted to know if there is another option I should look into?  
What have you used and recommend?

(If you've experience with Plex Pass please share your experience!)

I have a Macbook, iPhone, Apple TV, Roku and iPad.

Thank you for looking.

Hello fellow Experts Exchange members:

I have a user using Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2016 (the Office 365 version).  The user sends-and-receives a considerable amount of e-mail, and as a result we have been separating the archived mail into separate PST files for each year.

Thus, for example, the user has the following folders in Outlook:
*Username@Company.com
    (the Exchange mailbox)
*Current archive (PST file)
*Archive 2016 (PST file)
*Archive 2015 (PST file)
...
*Archive 2008 (PST file)

(Each of these PST files is upwards of 10 GB in size.)

Recently, when applying the AutoArchive settings through Options - Advanced - AutoArchive window, Outlook has sometimes applied the AutoArchive settings to *ALL OF THE PST FILES* (except the Current Archives PST file).

Each of the PST files has at least a HUNDRED subfolders under the Inbox.  

The problem is that there appears to be no way to bulk-modify the PST file settings to stop Outlook from attempting to archive the contents in old PST files (e.g. Archive 2008) to the Current Archives PST file.

E.g. Outlook will archive not only the contents of the Exchange mailbox but also the old content in the Archive 2008 PST file, Archive 2009 PST file, etc. up to the Archive 2016 PST file and move it to the corresponding folder in the Current Archive PST file.

Have any other Experts Exchange members encountered a situation similar to this?

I would appreciate any advice on how to both bulk-modify Outlook PST…

I need to backup a Sage accounts file 50Mb file from a Win 10 file server.

I need a reliable solution because the server in question is not monitored. It only gets checked around 3-4 times a year. I know there are loads of free sync utilities out there but I am specifically looking for a cloud-based solution that does versioning. So for example, if corruption or ransomware did strike, there would be at least 3 or 4 other copies to revert to?

If this has to be a paid backup - so be it.

Like the title says I need to upgrade the drive capacity of the SAN. I'll be taking the 8x450GB SAS (currently in RAID6) drives out and replacing them with larger drives. I am unfamiliar with this process (and SANS for the most part) and wondering what all it entails. I know how to physically replace drives I'm just talking about within the configuration of the SAN what I need to do.

The SAN is running the StoreVirtual OS  w/ HP StoreVirtual Centralized Management Console version 11.0. The data is all backed up on the companies BCS appliance so no worries there. I'd just like to know hopefully in a step by step manner what I need to do. Are there services and other things that need to be stopped prior to shutting it down and exchanging the drives etc? When I setup the new volumes how do I configure it so that my production server can see them (again I'm a SAN novice).

Thanks for any help here.

The Seagate STDR5000200 external hard drive we have contains every piece of data for our business such as databases and Microsoft office files.

It is locked in a safe for a month at a time.

For a few hours, this Seagate drive would be out of the safe for backing up PC and server data.

The data to backup is on Windows PCs and servers with operating systems such as Windows 10, 7 and XP.

This drive is replaced each month at a time by another drive which contains backup data.

The Seagate backup drive is not connected to a PC or to the cloud.

I believe this drive may not need encryption.

The reason being that if a thief steals it, the fact of them being a hacker is a billion to one.

What is the best password protection for Seagate STDR5000200 external hard drive?

Thanks,
Robbie

Hello Experts,

I have problems with BitTorrent Sync on Synology NAS: I have two identical NAS (Synology DS 214, Version DSM 6.1.3-15152 Update 3) where I configured BitTorrent Sync Package (Version 2.3.7-1) to synchronize data between two distant locations.

This worked fine for some months, but recently I found one of the two NAS fails to send new files to the other one. The NAS where it fails contains quite a lot of data (lots more than the other one), the synchronized data (one shared folder) it's about 870 GB, 370000 files in 23500 directories, overall there is about 1,1 TB, 520000 files in 39000 directories - the filesystem is EXT4.

I checked the BitTorrent log and found a large amount of error messages like this:
[20170826 05:26:49.206] MC[1CCF] [18FC]: processing get_nodes message for /NAS_II/<Path>/<Filename>
[20170826 05:26:49.207] MC[1CCF] [18FC]: too many nodes to send 190671, stopping at /NAS_II/<Path>/<Filename>

Open in new window

I searched for info about this message and found a hint this probably could be solved by increasing the  (https://forum.resilio.com/topic/40934-latest-destkop-build-214/) Max torrent metadata size in advanced preferences.

Question: Does anyone know if there may exist other reasons for these log messages?

Now I tried to change this but found there seems to be a problem with the settings files, it seems for any reason they're not updated after I changed the settings (via BitTorrent Sync's WebGui), when I view the settings after I changed them they look ok, but when I restart BitTorrent Sync and check the settings they're turned back to the values they had before.

I found the settings are stored in a file settings.dat
