Backup and Duplication RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • From disk usage on my system it appears that the backup data on the server is only on one drive.   An option to enable Duplication for backups would be a good addition.   If you have the disk space seems like a good place for redundancy.

    You're correct, backups are stored only once on WHS. They are, however, duplicated on the home PCs that have been backed up. So you already have data redundancy.

  • Unfortunately, you don't have full redundancy. If WHS has a disk failure and looses its backup data, you still have the latest version of all files on your client PCs. But you do loose all backups of previous versions of these files. And keeping around previous file versions is an important part of any backup strategy.
