Seeding data for internet connected clients

I have a few clients with slow connections and pretty big backups. The worst was about 500GB over a T1 which looks like with ideal conditions would take about 32 days… that’s a bit long. Is there a way to seed the data on the urbackup server from a hard drive and then just do incremental backups?

Yes. Put the data on a removable hard drive. Move it to your lokal network and add it as a backup path to any client. Then enable Enable “client side hashing” for the remote client. Files which are already stored on the server will then not be loaded.

Is there a way to do something similar with full image backups ?
