Hi list, I've to backup a large window$ 2003 FileServer (~800GB) from my new FreeBSD BackupServer (before I can change this fileserver to FreeBSD).
I'm trying cygwin+rsync on FileServer side and rsync+hardlinks on BackupServer side. Using rsync the two great advantages are: 1. Only copy the changes 2. on the BackupServer side I use hardlinks from the older backups, with this only space consumed is from file that where changed. on the bad side: 1. Problems with long pathnames 2. Problems with unicode filenames 3. Very slow copy ~ 2MB/s (I've doubt if this can be improved using any other copy method) I want hear some ideas from the list about the options available to accomplish this job.
