Large files and time/bandwidth limits?

Postby raytaylor » Wed May 22, 2013 3:46 pm

I have a question for you

If we have a customer in another country and their internet daily upload limit is 600 megabytes, can we spread the initial backup out over several weeks by using bandwidth and time limits?

I was thinking i would set them to 512kbit and let the backup run for two hours per day. That would mean it would backup 460 megabytes then stop.

The idea is that the 30 gigabytes of data would be backed up over ~60 days, and then the daily backups would only take a few minutes once the seeding is completed.

But they do have some large files.
If it started uploading a 1.2gb outlook pst file, and stopped due to the time limit, would it resume uploading the next day or would it start the file again, get stuck in a loop and then never get past the pst file?
