Question about Server Backup Functionality RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have there been any improvements made to the Server Backup functionality in WS2012E over what is available in WHS 2011?

    I know that discs >2TB are now supported, but can the backup task now span multiple backup drives, for example? Or can you define several backup sets and run them on different schedules?

    Thanks.

    Other than, as you note the ability to back up more than 2TB of data, which can be done to a multi disk Storage Space (providing resiliency if required), I see no other differences in functionality compared to WHS 2011.

    I feel a blog coming on!

  • Phil, thanks. I did rather fear as much. As for a blog entry, I'll keep my powder dry for the moment... :-)
