Initial copy restic very slow

Hi guys, I am truly delighted with this tool, but I see that the initial copy is very slow. I am using Restic 0.12 on windows and vss, backend a windows server and Minio. Any ideas? Thanks a lot. Greetings.

I’m not sure if this is your problem, but when I first started using restic in windows, microsoft defender was slowing it down tremendously. Adding a process exclusion for restic.exe seems to have made that problem go away. (windows security > virus & threat protection > manage settings > add or remove exclusions)

Do you mean “initial copy” as in using the copy command or do you refer to the backup command?

I’ll try to see how it goes. Thanks for the input.

backup command, thanks
