    I am trying to configure an Image Backup Job and the target drives are 4 Dell RD 1000 Tape/drives that we plan to rotate every Monday. I am also creating 2 different jobs, one a MS SQL job and one a File Backup job and those are being stored on a QNAP NAS for longer retention.

    The whole functionality will be re-worked once we implement new archive and GFS features. For now please workaround mentioned in this thread. It'l work without any additional pre-action scripts.

    Maybe the software has been installed in user mode, so the plan configuration files are located in your user folder, i.e.: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\CloudBerryLab\CloudBerry Backup

    You can actually type *.cbb into your Windows search field, and that should find those config files.

    Hey Matt,

    So I made the change to the .CBB file. However, the result was not ideal.
    It was taking longer to do the backups compared to me manually running a consistency check on the drives every time they are rotated.
    Now, imagine having to sync up a 5TB drive every time it gets replaced - it takes a really long time (2-3 days) to sync up.
    The consistency check I manually run takes at least 1 day and 12 hrs on average. Still a pretty long time. But usually after the consistency checks, the incremental backups will take 12-13 hours to run on average. I do a compression on the files as well - that factors in with the time.
    If there are any alternatives to having to manually do the consistency checks, that will be great to hear.

    thank you!
