iSCSI vs Network Share on NAS

I have a Synology NAS that I wasnt to use to store backups, and I was wondering which I should use. Is there any benefit to using it as a shared folder, instead of iSCSI or vice versa? I will have 4GBPS connection to the unit and I want to know which will provide better performance.

Volume ID Changed on Dynamic Disk & New Full Backup

For the life of me, I cannot figure out what would make a volumes ID change. Something happened almost 3 months ago and changed the volume ID of a drive on a server. We are just finding out today, because I went to do some DR testing and noticed the backup was not current for one of the drives. The ShadowControl console was not reporting that this backup was failing, but I haven't had time to look into that. I don't think I can do anything about the Volume Change, since a full backup with a new B002 has already started. Why the backup is working today, I have no idea. Another mystery.

Backup Failure -31 A device attached to the system is not functioning

Hello ! I'm having troubles in my backup jobs. I had a weekly scheduled backup job that backup a virtual DC on a network share.. It was working perfectly... making incremental backup each 2 hours.. Perfect. But since saturday, it is not working anymore. Why ? I dont know :( I have other servers configured for backup and are still working. Below is the log.

What I have tested:

- Delete all VSS shadow copies on the backuped server and on the server that takes the backup.

- Unplug all peripheral

- Change the destination to a external USB drive.

Very Large Incrementals After Windows 10 Clean Installation /w Mozy Also Running

I have been using SPD for at least five years but I may have missed something after I did a clean installation of Windows 10 Professional to my desktop.  I have been trying to figure out what is causing such large incremental files and runtimes for SPD, something that didn't happen before the clean installation of Windows 10, and the re-installation of SPD.

Less image files for one user?

Hi, I have a client that's using Shadow Protect on 3 machines, all backing up to a server runnning StorageCraft ImageManager.

2 of the users have about 220+ image files and are using about 1.3-1.5 TB of space, though the other user only has 59 images and only using 307GB of space.

The machines have all been running the software for the same amount of time, all have the same retention/consolidation settings configured within ImageManager (not sure about on their machines).

I'm running StorageCraft ImageManager version: 6.7.2.37550.

Backup strategy for newby with thought impediment

I probably just need to get used to ShadowProtect Desktop, but I feel particularly dense about it now. I have been used to doing a full backup every night with no increments, but that was using Windows 7 Backup & Restore which I disliked. I have 5 USB drives, and I think I get now that I could do a full backup every night, do incrementals during the day, and swap out the drive before the next scheduled full back up. This would give me 5 days worth of images to go back to if necessary.
