Questions About Restores


#1

Would restores go faster if all backups were paused? If so is there a way to tell the server to do that or maybe something that could be added in the future?


#2

In the Administrators Guide, see Section 8.1.3 “Do not do file backups” and 8.1.4 “Do not do image backups.” Then wait for whatever backup is running to finish - Activities tab - before doing your restore. If you’re in a hurry you can try to stop the running backups. Usually takes a minute or so.

You might also want to schedule the backups for outside working hours, if possible, when the server and network are not busy.
