Help required: backup hmailserver with Cobian backup

Post by Thomas Parvais » 2008-09-18 12:52

Hello,

I've installed Cobian backup to backup hmailserver directory structure, including data messages and I use Mysqldump to copy mysql hms DB.

It appears that Cobian backup build first a global unique 7z archive of all files before sending it to backup server.

That means that everytime only one file has changed (in data dir i.e.), the compression will restart from scratch and global unique archive file will be sent... it's taking a lot of time and network resources.

I can't find how to configure cobian to perform efficiently Hmailserver backup.

Any idea ?

Thank you

Thomas

If at first you don't succeed, bomb disposal probably isn't for you! ヅ
