I have a question regarding backup speed.

I have two devices that back up a similar capacity.

Both devices are using Acronis 11.7 (build 50073).

A device (DB Server) is a Linux environment, and it backs up about 760GB.
Device B (ERP Server) is a Windows environment, and it backs up about 785 GB.

The storage is using the same NAS device.

And the total backup time of these two devices is as follows.

Equipment A takes about 15 hours.
Equipment B takes about 2 hours.

Even though the capacity is similar, the difference in backup speed is very large.

What is the problem?
And what is the way to speed up backup of device A?

Hello Lemoning.

Please check the network protocol that uses device A for connection to the NAS. It could be that device B uses smb3 when device A uses smb1.
