Slow incremental backups
Our incremental backups are not really any faster than our full backups. Going by this previous thread it looks like a common issue? https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/deduplication-incremental-backup-taking-more-16-hours Our incremental backup time needs to be shortened so they can finish over night and not run into the next day.
Currently I have one job which backups all our servers. So theoretically it will do one at a time at full speed. Would it be better to have one job per server and have them all running at the same time? So theoretically the jobs will run slower, but as they are all running at once might finish earlier??
This is on a Backup Exec 3600 R2 appliance and I'm happy with the full backup speeds. I just don't see much point in incremental if it's going to take the same time as a full backup?
