New installation - how to skip initial full backup?

Post by ohornig » Fri Aug 02, 2019 2:46 pm

Hello,
we have done manual sync of two SMB folders via IPsec tunnel. Now I want to set up new Cobian Backup task with differential backup, but the task is always started as full backup. Because of IPsec line speed and the amount of data, the transfer will take about a week. That is not acceptable. Is it possible to skip first full backup and start with differences only?

Thanks for reply!

Uncheck Options-Engine- First backup always full
