We have a QNAP NAS and the network shares are being backed up by Backup Exec 2010 over SMB. We can't install the remote agent on the NAS as it has an ARM processor and, as far as I am aware, there is no compatible agent.
Do you have any suggestions on any faster method of backing up these shares as opposed to the current scenario?
Currently the network bandwidth is not the issue, it seems that this access method is just not able to go any quicker. We've also added the NAS shares to the start of the selection list, but we're still running into 18 hours total backup time (total amount of data on the NAS is roughly 650GB).
Any comments and/or suggestions welcome.
EDIT: Data is being pulled from the NAS by Backup Exec to a LTO4 tape drive
