Disk based storage

This issue has been solved. See solution.


I created a share folder on a server to use as disk based storage but there is other data on the disk in other folders (image files etc ...), is it a problem ?

Thank you

Not at all...if it isn't possible to have a dedicated disk for a B2D, having other data on the same drive doesn't necessary matter unless you're expecting very good responses when accessing that data.

If you are backing up that same data to that B2D, responses can be slow during the backup.

Thank you Craig,

Also, can you tell me what is the best "Block Size" and "Buffer Size" disk based storage and in my case shared folder ?

In disk storage B2D filder contain not image file. It is .BKP which contain backup data and file size limited in B2D folder settings.
