Use one backup archive file for all destinations

Post by apour »

Hello,

when I have multiple destinations, it appears that a new archive is made for each destinations. Is there a way to configure CB to create one archive and then just copy it to all destinations? Our full backup is scheduled for Fri evening, now it already takes ~20 hours, and with 3 destinations it does not finish before Monday evening when incremental backup starts.
With current behaviour we also get full backups with different timestamp at each destination, but it is a minor issue.

Thank you.

For similar cases I have 2 tasks: one with compression and one without compression that copies the result (the compressed file) to the second destination.

Thank you. I think I understand now... I created a task with incremental type, folder with backups as source, no compression.
I suppose the second task has "Mirror task" checked in Advanced option, in order to have obsolete archives in the destinations deleted, right?
