comment Lower the I/O priority for backups
I just ran it by the higher-ups and they rather have it go slow than spend money on making the backups run faster :(

comment Lower the I/O priority for backups
Would using windows file and folder compression free up I/O resources at the expense of CPU resources, or would it not make a difference?

comment Lower the I/O priority for backups
Unfortunately this is a 1U server and all the bays are full and used in a RAID configuration. there is also a issue with the USB controller not showing up in hardware devices (that is the reason it is running on the same disk, it used to go to a external drive, now it gets backed up locally then FTPed to another machine.)

Thanks for 1 and 2, for number 3 I will be doing exactly what you are doing. No use during the day but once a week some number crunching will be done on it. Would you recommend leaving it in NO RECOVERY until the number crunching or leave it in STANDBY?
