Server Backup to External USB (2TB) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have backup for the server configured and backing up. I would like to just get a full and incrementals until the external USB drive is full. Then have it start over with a full and incrementals. Is this how the default setup is handled? Will it automatically do this or is there anything I need to do?

  • You have no control over what happens! Incremental backups are continuous until the disk is full and then the Server will delete old backups to create space for new ones. Think about using a second drive so that you can implement an off site backup strategy.
