CB lite and Win System Backup to S3

Postby ovizii » Tue Aug 05, 2014 10:39 pm

I am currently evaluating the trial version of CB lite and would like to test a Windows System Backup to S3 but I can only select local disk as target?

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in CloudBacko.

One the screen shot you sent us, you are actually configuring the temporary drive where CloudBacko stores the Windows System image file before it is encrypted & compressed and backed up to your Amazon S3 Cloud storage.

Please select D: drive and [Next] to continue with the backup set configuration.

In that case your label of "Specify the location where you want to store the system backup" is totally misleading :-)

So this is not really a streaming backup, right?
I mean if my Windows System has 100GB I need another 100GB to store the backup before it gets uploaded?

Hello,

In order for CloudBacko perform a Window System backup, the whole Windows System image file must be generated first using the Microsoft wbadmin utility before it can uploaded to Cloud storage location. The Window image file is saved to a temporary drive where CloudBacko will encrypt & compress the file before it is uploaded to your Amazon S3 Cloud storage.
