StorageCraft Shadowprotect SPX is a backup and disaster recovery product by StorageCraft. It can be used both on Linux based machines and Windows based machines.
In this post we will discuss backup schemes that we can use using shadowprotect SPX. Also we will have a look at some of the advanced features that we can select based on backup needs of our organization
Backup Schemes in Storage Craft Shadow protect
- Full, Manual
The Continuous incremental backup schedule type first creates a full backup of the volume as a base image file. Subsequently, SPX creates incremental backup images on the specified schedule to capture changes to the volume.
The Mixed backup type starts a new backup chain on the specified day of the week or month. This job type includes a combination of a full backup then daily incremental backups run on the set schedule until the next scheduled full backup.
This schedule executes a full backup at the scheduled time(s) each week or month.
This option executes a one-time full backup of the selected volume. This backup occurs outside of any existing scheduled backup. The one-time backup can start immediately or at a later specified date and time.
Throttling- Limits system resources used during the backup process. For example, I/O bandwidth used by SPX to create a backup image file. (The default is 50% of resources.)
Save Volume Free Space in Backup Images – Creates a backup of all sectors on the volume including those sectors marked as free space. This can result in a much larger image file, but may help preserve previously deleted files.
Ignore read failures during backup – Instructs SPX to ignore disk read errors that occur during the creation of backup image files. Use this option with caution, as it may back up disk corruption and prevent a restored volume from working properly
Save volume images concurrently– Enables or disables creating backup images simultaneously for multiple volumes rather than creating one backup image at a time. The system hardware needs to support a high disk load to use this option.
Immediately run missed backups on restart – Enables or disables executing the last scheduled backup job if it was missed. (For example, because the system was powered off.) If SPX missed more than one scheduled job, this option executes only the last unexecuted backup job
Use write cache when saving images– Bypasses the file transfer API in SPX and instead uses Windows processes when there are issues with prolonged backup times.
Split image files into smaller files- SPX can split a large backup image file into multiple smaller files. These smaller files create a Spanned Image Set.
