If you are signed up to receive R1Soft emails then you may have already seen our new CDP Quick Tips. We will continue to send out quick tip emails, but will also start posting them on the blog as well. CDP Quick Tips offer insightful information on best practices for data protection using R1Soft CDP products.

CDP Quick Tip #1:

The R1Soft CDP Server archives virtual full backups on disk.  Once the initial replica is complete it snapshots changes (block level deltas), organizes them into recovery points, and stores them in the R1Soft Disk Safe data files. Some of the block level deltas that make up the recovery points may well be stored for years, because they haven’t changed.  Because this data is stored for long periods of time it becomes susceptible to file system fragmentation.  This typically gets worse over time and can cause the performance of the CDP Server to erode.

To ensure that your CDP Servers continue to perform at high speed, I recommend that you defragment them on a regular basis.
