Feature Requests for Remote Sync

By lukemeyle - 24 August 2022 1:42 PM

1. We would like to see the ability to have remote syncs occur anytime a repository is changed/backup finished. Currently is starts during the time frame specified, but if we run a backup in the middle of the day, even if it's in that range, it won't start until it hits that start time.
2. During a remote sync if the device/agent is rebooted the sync will cancel. We'd like to see the ability to pause a remote sync during a reboot and resume on start. If we have a long remote sync (ie - days/weeks) ensuring the device/agent stays online is sometimes difficult.
3. Not sure if this is possible - but we'd like to see the ability to use remote sync and the retention rule "Incrementals Forever" (using Synthetic Full Backups). I know we can currently do this, but it's not fluid. Any time that synthetic is created it has to upload a brand new "Full" backup to the remote sync cloud service. Time is the concern here. We want remote sync to be as quick as possible and currently we can't utilize synthetic full backups due to the way remote sync currently operates (mirroring the repository). Again, I don't know if this is possible to change, but it would be a great feature to have!
