Checkpoint Restart Option for Duplicate Jobs

Having remote MMS servers that duplicate it's backup job to another storage device (CASO Server), it would be nice if there was a indication of how much progress the duplicate job has made. For example we have many MMS servers in remote locations. Doing a duplicate back to the main site, especially for the first time, it would be nice to have the restart option available on duplicate jobs.

The reason is that an MMS server in a remote site with a poor or slow network connection can takes days or weeks to duplicate. The duplicate job has to then be cancelled after some days so at least a full backup can occur on the MMS. Then the duplicate job kicks off again but since there is no checkpoint restart option on duplicate jobs (only backups) the duplicate never completes.
