Speedup NAS backup on Windows
Last Updated: Aug 28, 2013 10:31AM PDT
File backup of NAS devices on Windows sometimes runs with bad performance.
The reason most of the times is the ACL backup job option set.
The client tries to get ACL-related information from Active Directory and Domain Controller servers.
This operation might take long time especially when there is a firewall in between which permits this operation and the connection runs into a timeout for each request.
The recommendation is to remove the firewall blockings or if this is impossible switch off ACL option in backup job.
Instead of the ACL option, use namespace option to receive as much as possible meta information for each directory/file in the backup.
