  • RDX system with Windows 2k8 R2

    I have an HP RDX 1TB external unit connected to Windows Server 2k8 R2 it is working and backup the whole C drive.

    What I would like to do is to exclude a few folder from this backup I have a few folders that holding images of other workstations, Is that possible ?
    I could not find any way to select any folder or file with this backup system.

    Thank you

    What are you using for your backup? In Windows Backup you can exclude folders.

        I am not familiar. Just googled it and it looks like a hard drive cartridge system.

        I have used Backup Exec and Windows backup on such systems but I've found that managing the media to be a big pain. I've had to write some script to run RSM commands to make sure the media was ready.

        If the RDX software has utilities for managing the media then you might be able to use that combined with Windows Backup to get what you need done.

        I would really look at moving away from using the RDX utility for backups.

          it kinda too late now, I just got it. the HP software provide a track on which cartridge is in and when so it make life easier on that part it also have a boot recovery which is nice and easy. the only thing is I can not find any file or folder selection, after I install the driver it start to backup did not ask me what or how, also it has a nice monitoring let you know if the cartridge is missing and life span. I just wish it had this option, and it will be great.


          Thanks

            Well, you're at the mercy of the HP software if you don't want to move away from it.
