Not sure if this is the correct place to post but I’m wondering that since the initial backup would take so long (say if it’s backing up a large folder across the WAN) would it be possible to pause and resume the backup based on a schedule?
This way the initial backup can happen when I know the network is not in use?
I would not mind if it took a few days for it to accomplish the initial backup as long as it’s during non-use hours.
And along the same lines, is it possible to specify how much bandwidth should be allocated for restic? So say I know that my network is 10Mbps (upload speed) I would like to have restic only consume half of that.
I’m trying to address the issue of minimizing network impact which is why there are 2 questions here…
