Description

Low disk space threshold (at which backup operations are suspended)

Indicates if backup operations to the backup-to-disk folder are suspended when the amount of free space on the disk reaches a specific level.

When the disk's free space reaches this threshold, Backup Exec places current jobs on hold until disk space is available. The low disk space threshold prevents disk-full errors and provides early warning. This threshold prevents jobs from being submitted to a backup-to-disk folder that does not have enough disk space to allow the job to complete. Backup Exec can instead submit the jobs to backup-to-disk folders that do have enough disk space.The backup-to-disk status displays Low Disk Space. You must free some disk space to allow job submission to resume.

Auto detect settings

Indicates if Backup Exec automatically detects the preferred settings for this device.

Buffered reads

Indicates the following:

  • You do not want Backup Exec to automatically detect settings for this device

  • You want this device to allow buffered reads, which is the reading of large blocks of data.

Enabling buffered reads may provide increased performance.

Buffered writes

Indicates the following:

  • You do not want Backup Exec to automatically detect settings for this device

  • You want this device to allow buffered writes, which is the writing of large blocks of data.
