If you have a lot of data (e.g. 300GB) to backup to the Backup server, it would take a considerable amount of time to perform the first full backup over the Internet. You can try the following method:
- Use the Seed Loading Utility to backup your backup set to a local hard disk (instead of directly transfer to the Backup server)
- Send the backup data, using a removable hard disk, to us, or we can visit your site to pick up your data (local customers only)
- We then load all your backup files from your removable hard disk into your backup account. This could save you days (even weeks) of performing your first full backup.
In addition, subsequent backups are incremental (only new or updated files will be uploaded to the server), the amount of data transfer should be relatively small.
Note there is a small one-off charge for this sevice
