Enabling network throttling

Consider using this feature only when you know what your network can handle. If you schedule your backups at staggered intervals and when network traffic is low, you may not need to use this feature. Avoid backing up multiple computers at the same time and to the same network destination.

Gather the required information about your network's performance and then schedule backups accordingly. Enable this feature and set the Maximum network throttling to a setting that matches the circumstances.

  1. On the Tasks menu, click Options.

  2. Click Performance.

  3. Select Enable network throttling.

  4. In the Maximum network throttling field, enter the maximum amount (in KB) of network throughput.

  5. Click OK.
