question regarding same movie file on different computers and scan/alocation to shared folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • it was my understanding that if I had a move "x" on a comp and the same movie "x" on a different computer that during scanning and copying of media file hp 485 would recognize it as the same movie in two locations and only back up one on the shared folder for videos. no?

  • Hi,
    backups and shared folders are not identical.
    Single instance backup will ensure, that the file is only one time stored within the backup database.
    But what is stored in the shared folders, is independend from backup and only contolled by the authorized users.

    As Olaf already said, the backup database is completely separate from the network shares (basically it's 2 different applications).
