• help to create a Backup strategy
    I think only keeping one version is risky and the only value it provides is reduced storage. I would encourage you to keep multiple versions in case someone makes a mistake in a file and needs to go back to an older version.

    Block-level can help greatly with the speed in backing up changes to large files, but for local restores where bandwidth is not an issue, you can certainly disable that option and back up entire files should they change.

    To do what you want, you'll need two backup plans: One for local and one for cloud. If you decide to enable block-level for all backups, then you can use a single Hybrid backup plan to the local and cloud targets.If you want to speak with support about the recovery time issue you had with the local restore (I do not think block-level should have caused a performance issue with local storage) then please reach out. You can send logs from the computer in question from the Tools | Diagnostic toolbar option.
  • Folder structure restore
    Yes. If you do not use the "Track File Deletes" option, then if you restore from another computer that does not have access to the local CloudBerry repository on the server that was backed up, you will restore the deleted files. If you do not use the option and restore from the server, then you can avoid restoring deleted files since the restore has access to the local repository. if you use the option, then you can restore from anywhere and avoid deleted file restores.
  • Schedule options different / missing in new version
    Exactly. Block-Level is really for large files that change little day-to-day.
  • Enable option to skip locked files
    If you're using VSS for the backup (or selected the Block-Level option which requires VSS), then there is no reason to use this option as VSS will snapshot the system and allow you to back up those in-use files anyway. In other words, they are no longer locked exclusively for the purpose of backup. Does that help answer your question?
  • Can alerts be configured differently for different types of devices?
    As Klim stated, you can use the Group Level Report to run as needed. If you use the Filter Option - By User, then you can select the user account that is associated with a customer's workstations, as opposed to other assets like Server. But to do that, you would have to use a different user account for each of the types of assets you want to report on differently at that customer.
  • Schedule options different / missing in new version
    Full backups with File Backup plans are different than Image Backups. On the File Backup plan, we require Full backups of individual files that were backed up using Block-Level Backups. The Full never backs up everything beyond the first backup. Since you have not selected Block-Level, then there is no need to perform a full file backup of any of the files. Every backup is automatically incremental when using File-Level backups; meaning, we only back up those files that are new or changed. Does that help address your question?
  • scheduling backups
    You may want to look at the bandwidth controls. Rather than stopping the backup, you can slow it down during business hours automatically.
  • Event ID's Always 0 / Zero on Cloudberry Windows Events
    Looks like changes are targeted for the 6.4 release. I don't have a release date at this time. I'll update once I have a better idea of the date.
  • Restore entire bucket at a specific date with S3 versioning
    Looping back. I did check and the team told me it's not possible to do in Explorer. Best to do it via the S3 API. Let us know how it goes.
  • Deployment using msi
    There’s currently no silent install option as far as I’m aware with RA. Having said that, there’s already a requirement in the system to support it. I’ve added your request to the internal requirement. Thanks.
  • "Total limit exceeded", but it isn't
    Are you letting CloudBerry clean it out or are you deleting from Google manually. You should always let CloudBerry do the cleanup. If not, you'll need to synchronize the repository as the product may think there's more there than actually exists.
  • Firewall rules
    Are you using a Proxy perhaps? If so, make sure to set the Proxy Settings in Options.Easiest way to resolve this is to send the logs to the support team. You can do this easily from the Diagnostic menu option. Feel free to reference this post in your request. I would cause a connection failure first, then send the logs.
  • Quickie on Remote Assistant -- Love it -- in Theory
    The full client should prevent the Windows Secure Desktop UAC dialog from triggering. The Quick Support client cannot do this. The assumption is someone is at the other end for the active support session.
  • OK -- I need remedial help
    Having said that, a full will run instead of block-level if the percent of file changes are over your set limit. See this post for a full explanation:
  • OK -- I need remedial help
    Block-level will identify the differences in the files and only back up the changes. The full backup you'll have to schedule to run with some frequency will only back up the files in full that were backed up using block-level backups. That's done so we can properly manage retention as set in the backup plan.
  • OK -- I need remedial help
    Schedule your backups instead of using real-time. Real-time cannot monitor shares and under stress (when many files are changing quickly) it may even miss files. It's much better to schedule your backups as needed, even if it's something like every hour.
  • Issue on Windows Server 2008
    please make sure you have . NET 4.5.1 installed.
    As Matt said. VSS only supports snapshots on NTFS mounted volumes. The way around this is to install CloudBerry Backup Server Edition on the server where the source files reside - assuming it's a Windows Server.
