Shouldn't backup copy be incremental too ?

Recommended Posts

We are taking backups of a Hyper-V server and after the initial backup, the daily backups have settled to a regular pattern of what has changed - at around 25GB per day.

But we then have a backup copy job to copy these backups offsite. This works, but the backup copy job shows as increasing in size every day - so it's now 151GB and taking all night. Surely it should only be copying what's changed.

The remote site is a Synology NAS running 9.1 as transporter only.

We have a support ticket running for this, ref 113194.

From our investigations it looks like upgrading the receiving transporter to 9.1 broke it and then upgrading the sending transporter (from 8.0 and 9.0) may have fixed it - waiting for overnight runs to confirm.

We are still trying to catch up on one site but the others are mostly OK now. One has a corrupted repository and we'll probably just junk it and start again over the weekend.

We were originally told it didn't matter if you have mismatched revisions but it seems it does. Now being encouraged to move to 9.2 but that's not going to happen any time soon.
