Backup Exec has a local "Agent" on the PC to be backed up that can evaluate the backup needs locally on command from the central software. It also reads the files and compresses them before sending over the LAN thus speeding up things considerably. Normally only FULL backups handle lots of data, all nightlies only need to process changed files so the load is much lower.

AFAIK Dantz makes software targeted at small and midsized business, maybe their software have issues with "large" directories with a lot of files and folders - Windows itself has some too. Higher level tools like BackupExec should be designed to handle complex and large backups. _______________________________________________ cvsnt mailing list cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook http://www.cvsnt.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cvsnt https://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/en.asp#downcvs
