  • I have three computers other than my server in my house and it seems that only one is connecting to the server to allow backups and such to be done, what could be the issue?

  • Hi,
    Could it be your network is slow or has problems?
    For an initial backup all data on the client needs to be transfered to the server. This may take a long time (hours depending on the amount of data on the client and your network speeds). From there only files added/changed need to be transfered which will normally take less then an hour.

    Could be your network is slow and/or has problems. May be that backups that run a long time get interrupted.
    Keep retrying the backups untill it finishes.

    Also check your network speeds. There may be a problem?
