do you need cloudberry for a local (non encrypted) backup restore?

Hi all,

I'm using cloudberry for whs2011 for local and amazon S3 backup. I wanted to setup the local backup with no encryption or compression so that the data can be viewed and restored very simply (copied back to its original location, to be more accurate) using windows explorer. But it looks like that's not possible.

 

Can anyone confirm that even with no encryption or compression, you would still need cloudberry installed on a whs2011 machine to do the restore.

 

thanks

Yes, you can backup to a share but I believe you will still need to install the software to restore.

You might want to use something like AllwaySync to accomplish it instead as it is a real time file copy. Personally I prefer to use both a backup and sync program for the best protection and ease of use.

I use RoboCopy in these scripts to do exactly what you want to do. I have the folders sync up once a day using Task Scheduler, but you could have it sync as often as you want. I haven't done it, but I believe there's a way to have RoboCopy monitor a folder and copy changes over when they occur. IOW, there are quite a few choices for this kind of thing.
