Express Full Backups RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Afternoon,

         I am thinking about setting my express full backup to run during the day during the day to decrease supporting this at night. My question is will this impact our databases to the point of customer impact. We currently do 4 sync jobs a day, then a full backup on Friday night. Just trying to make sure there is no impact.

  • Hi

    I have mine do incremental backups during the day and express full backup at night not to put any pressure on the users.

    You can test it by running a full back and see what happens, this will answer your question as each network is different.

  • It will also depend on how you are setup, if you have a DAG you can run a full backup against the passive copy. I would suggest doing an EF once a day at night and sync to what your recovery goal needs are.
