Am I crazy for trying to run a 2.5TB backup to a 7zip file, to a 100mbps nas? Also, a nas that never runs anywhere near that...
Okay actually I just bought a new USB 3.0 enclosure, which should be here by wednesday lol.
But still... even to a USB3 enclosure... am I crazy for thinking that my little ole' laptop will be able to handle a 2.5TB backup to a 7zip file? I've been running to my local drive as a test for almost 20 hours now and its white-ing out at only 35GB.
For these types of very very large backups, should I just be using the sync/mirror?
And if so, what if I split up my backup into 2 jobs... 1 job for audio/video folders, with no compression, just on sync, and then 1 job for all other files to a 7Zip target?
Would I be overcomplicating things too much, or would I be saving a bunch of hassle and time?
I've never done more than just a simple mirror/sync to my crappy old nas, and only this year am I saving tons more video (live shows, youtube videos, gaming videos, etc etc), and I have to say... I feel like a total n00b.
Thanks for any advice you guys have for me!
