Description of the options available on the Advanced tab of the Properties for a Backup to Disk folder


Solution




To configure advanced options for a backup-to-disk folder:

On the navigation bar, click Devices. Select the Backup to Disk folder. Right-click the folder and select PropertiesAdvanced. (Figure 1)

Figure 1



The following options are available on the Advanced tab of the Properties for a Backup to Disk folder:
 


Disk space reserve

 

    Check Disk space reserve to prevent a job from being written to the backup-to-disk folder when the threshold that you specify is reached. Enter an amount of disk space to reserve on the disk. When this threshold is reached, Backup Exec cannot submit jobs for processing that are targeted to this backup-to-disk folder, but jobs that are running will finish. The backup-to-disk status displays Low Disk Space. Free up some disk space to allow job submission to resume.

Auto detect settings

    Check Auto detect settings to let Backup Exec automatically detect the preferred settings for this device. Uncheck Auto detect settings if this is a device for which the buffered reads or writes need to be set.

Buffered reads

    Check Buffered reads if:
  • Backup Exec should not automatically detect settings for this device.
  • The device should allow buffered reads, which is the reading of large blocks of data (Enabling buffered reads may provide increased performance).

     

Buffered writes

 

    Check Buffered writes if:
  • Backup Exec should not automatically detect settings for this device
  • The device should allow buffered writes, which is the writing of large blocks of data.
