I have only just purchased a 4TB MBLD (2TB in RAID1) and also have a 2TB External USB Drive attached to it to store Safepoints.
My question is - After the initial Safepoint, do automatically scheduled Safepoints completely overwrite the initial Safepoint or does it just write changed/added files?
The reason I ask is that the initial Safepoint took many hours to complete and I would like to schedule a Safepoint each day but thrashing the drive for hours on a daily basis, and the performance hit that then happens with the MBLD, might be too much!
Maybe creating Safepoints isn’t the best way to protect the data stored on the MBLD? Any other suggestions?
Thank-you in advance for any assistance you are able to provide.
