Hi,

We are running Kerio Connect 7.3.1 P2 on Mac OS X Server 10.7.4. I am looking for ways to clone Kerio store periodically to an external hard drive, because if things go wrong, I'd like to be able to recover quickly, and restoring 500GB worth of mail data from backup is no where close to "quickly".

Previously I was using Carbon Copy Cloner, but recently I've noticed a lot of folder indexes being corrupted. I can't prove that it's because of CCC, but chances are it probably is. So I wanted to see if anyone has a good recommendation.

Thanks.

you can try something like sincrify
http // web.synametrics.com /Syncrify.htm

i use it to do remote offsite backups of fileservers and some mail servers, it takes some time, but if you can spare an hour or two per day for the backup it will surely do the job.

Regards!

Are you saying they are corrupted on the original (source) drive? I doubt it's because of CCC. But in any case, try Chronosync.

Yeah. We recently moved the mail server to a new hard ware. It was running fine for the first day, and on second day I decided to start CCC again. A few hours after CCC completed, mail server started to have trouble. I rebooted the server and found tons of listing in the Warning log regarding corrupted index on multiple users.

That should be a coincidence more than anything, CCC uses rsync and I've rsynced many a live mailstore without any issues at all.

Thank you for the reassurance. I'll fire up CCC again this weekend and see how it goes.

Thanks again.

I use rsync on Linux (but you have it also in MAC OS) and it works fine.

rsync -aHv --delete source(directory) destination(server-directory)

the --delete option is to avoid copying what has not changed, so the copy is very quick.

Tony, you had corrupted indexes because you rebooted the server in the middle of people being connected to it. My guess is your forced a reboot.
