There are a number of ways in which you can improve your backup efficiency with the Backup Intelligence client.
- Defragmenting your hard drive: By carrying out a defragmentation on your hard drive you can compact your files and make it easier for Backup Intelligence to sort through and upload them to the cloud.
- Disk cleanup: Clearing out any lingering cache files and temporary files every now and again will stop Backup Intelligence scanning through anything unnecessarily.
- Scheduling: By changing your backup schedule to be during times when there is less internet traffic on your network (such as during the night) the client can make better use of the bandwidth available.
- File selection: Ideally your file selection should only include files that contain raw data and documents as opposed to running programs or operating system files that can be recovered by other means. This keeps your archive size down to a minimum, meaning the client can perform backup jobs in less time.
