I have a Windows PC with four NTFS hard discs in it. 160GB, 4TB, 4TB, 8TB. And this thing is full of films and music.
I am backing up to a UNRAID server (v6.9.2) with urbackup server v2.4.13 running in a docker container.
I setup the client for first time on this PC. Fairly default on the settings. And then got a warning in the server logs as my images are too big:
Data on volume is too large for VHD files with 2.8054 TB. VHD files have a maximum size of 2040GB. Please use another image file format.
What should I do to backup 3.5TB of data from a drive? Is this too big for an image backup? Can I only use file mode? Or is there a way of creating multiple VHD files?
The nature of the data means it doesn’t change too often. Just gets added to and the music gets tags updated.
Previously I have only backed up office PCs with small hard disks. Didn’t know there was a limit on the images.
Note: The UNRAID server is freshly built specifically to run urbackup.
