The 'help' did not explain what the benefits would be if you would make this bigger. Maby it depends on the number of data you are backup to the device, the more data the bigger the B2D device the more efficient data storage would be ? I don't really know.-- Kind Regards A van der Boom

    The default is 1Gb as this is seen as a comfortable amount to move around onthe network.There are no other ( at leasrt none that i am aware of) reasons why this isthe default - change it all you like, but bear in mind the time it takes tomanage the files if moving them around.OJ"TomSmithUSF" wrote in messagenews:41e2d65c@ROSASTDMZ05....>> We are currently looking into backup to disk using BE 9.0 and we werewondering> if anyone had advice regarding the backup file size max.
