File System

General

Storware Backup & Recovery is able to protect file systems mounted on its nodes. Both full and incremental backups are supported.
Note:
  • Storware Backup & Recovery scans for file system changes based on the modification time and size of the file with each incremental backup.
  • only regular files, symlinks, and directories are going to be backup
  • for file systems, Storware Backup & Recovery currently builds images for each backup before uploading data to the specific backup provider, so it doesn't have to upload objects one-by-one - these images will be merged automatically in restore tasks
