Configuring Backup

Postby Susan Bunbury » Wed Oct 03rd, 2007 11:36am

The general set up for configuring backup is explained here: http://www.mailtraq.com/backup

Selecting a suitable destination
The drive you select for the destination of the Backup should be formatted as NTFS, not FAT32 which can only store files up to 4gb.

Microsoft publish this KB article on converting to NTFS: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307881

If you use a FAT32 format hard-drive, and the backup files exceed the maximum file size then the backup will fail and you will see a log entry similar to:
EXCEPTION (NexusDB: <unnamed> TnxTable instance>: Table is full. [$2507/9479]) @ Backup Service

Also:
Care should be taken to use "Safely remove hardware" before unplugging any USB mass-storage devices used in this context.
Best wishes,
Susan
