I am new at my company and there is already a backup in place using Symantec 2010
We have one location that runs the backup software (HQ) and remote sites (that are on slower links) that send the required data back to HQ for backup.
We are using DFS to copy the data from remote sites to a folder on our server that the Symantec program using to backup from. Right now this folder is 880GB in size and from what I have been told this folder is then looked at for changes and then the changes are backed up to tape. This folder is required...
Is there not just a client for Symantec that can be used on the remote servers so that ONLY the changed files are sent, then only these changed files need to be in the HQ folder that is backed up. Is there really a need for a folder almost a TB in size for Symantec to be able to accomplish the job?
thx in advance,
