About backup time

Post by chansonsky »

I use two ways to backup, one is local, the other is LAN. The latter consumes more time. Is there any way to improve it?
Specific description can be seen in the picture.

I can't see by your settings if you are using compression. If compression is used, then the time will be much longer on the LAN, so disabling compression should help a lot.

I checked,and neither of the backups uses compression.For the Backup task 1,select"Create separated backup using timestamps",but not "Mirror task".For the Backup task 2,did not select"Create separated backup using timestamps",and selected"Mirror task".I don't know if this setting will make backups task 2 consumes more time to complete the task.

For mirror tasks, the program must check the existence (and the date and attributes) of the files in the destination so the time will increase. I'm not sure why it increase so much though (unless there are a lot of small files to control).
