Remote Domain Controller - replicate only changes.

    Question

  • A quick rundown - we need to create a remote traversal domain, but there are *POLITICS* between our host and the host of the remote domain, so we're not allowed to create a domain member onsite. We need to ship backups of the servers offsite.

    Is there a way to replicate out only the changes made by Windows Server Backup?  I know that it creates a single VHD per volume, but I'm wondering if there's a way to mount the volumes and copy out only the changes, rather than the full backup.

  • Hi,

    Based on my knowledge, in fact Windows Server Backup, by default, creates incremental backups that function like full backups (you can recover any item from a single backup, but the backup will only occupy space needed for an incremental backup). All file/folder backups (except the first one) are incremental backups where only the changed files are read and transferred to the backup storage location.

    What do you mean you want to copy only changes for the backup?

    Backup versions are kept in the shadow copies on the backup target. they can not be copied using file copy. So it is not suggested you copy the backup from one storage location to another.

    If you also need to access the backup in remote location. You could consider to save the backup on network location.

    Best Regards,
