NBU Mastser Server  - 6.5.6

Client - Windows 2003

I am facing issue while backup one Specific Drive and its taking almost 90 hrs and keep on wtiting data.

In Backup Selection we have mention G:\ and under G Drive it contains many sub-folders. When i go to BAR its selection is like this:

G:/backup_contactdata\01-Dec-2009\Priority_1\1_1\.XML file ---- I want to use asterik charater so that it can be divided on some streams.

I tried but its backing up only 1 file,so some setting are missing....

Below are the Backup selecton which i tested by using Multistreaming:


Result: It backup only 1 file.

This is one example in BAR .Backup selection in BAR = G:/backup_contactdata\01-Dec-2009\Priority_1\1_1\.XML file.There are many folder which contain August 2009/Sept 2009/October 2009/November2009/December2009.

Please specify Backup Selection in Astrek so that i can specify the Backup Selction in Policy:


Above is the snpspot of BAR.

I gone through the article but no luck -

Any help would be appreciated...
