    PBS Backup a MacBook?

    I suggest this, Create a VM with a fileshare on it that you can run your timemachine backups to, then backup that vm with PBS

    Explanation needed for incremental backups and deduplication backups

    There is also the "Deduplication Factor" on the summary page for each datastore that gives you a hint as to how much space is saved by dedup. Note: You have to run a garbage collection on the store for this to update.

    Does PBS try to BU itself?

    What you could do is remove the checkbox on the data-disk attached to your PBS vm called "Backup", this will exclude this disk from the backup. But you could still include the OS disk for instance to keep a copy of the config? (though do not do it this way in production :p , you could end being...

    TrueNAS VM - using vdisk for LOG cache.

    Greatly depends on what kind of storage medium is backing the vdisk i would say. If your other disks are hdd, and the storage you want to use for the vdisk is ssd, then you should see some perfomance improvment (depending on your workload also) Though in my experience, adding caches in truenas...

    Improve loading time

    Snapshots and backups are two very diffrent things.. Assuming you are indeed talking about backups as you mentioned PBS in second post; I have seen similar behaviour when the PBS server have to little resources, like the cpu being pinned at 100% by some task, or if the storage you are using has...

    Can't Install Proxmox Backup Server 2.3 on Huawei server 2288H V5

    I have encountered similar issues on other hardware in the past, best way is to install Debian directly, and then add the PBS repo and install that on top. :-)

    Backup of windows client.

    Right now my docker image does not handle this, so open files will simply be skipped with a warning in the logs. What you could do is use the "VSS for SMB shares" feature

    Backup of windows client.

    Using SMB share as the source is totally fine, we have been doing that for a long time here. To simplify things a bit I have created a docker image that can backup SMB shares or a few other sources of data and uses proxmox-backup-client to send it to the backup server...

    Timeout during backups

    In regards to increasing performance, Currently i'm using a raidz1 for the storage wich is kind of horrible for writes. What kind of performance impact would adding an NVMe cache have for running PBS?

    Proxmox VE 6.4 available

    Would be nice if the file restore also allowed restore of files from "host" type backups, ie. direct file backups with proxmox-backup-client I know this can be done from PBS gui, but not if the backups are encrypted :)

    Timeout during backups

    The servers running the backup jobs are connected to the same switch as the backupserver. Not much happening on the network in the middle of the night when the jobs are running. Is there a limit to how many backup jobs that can run at once?

    Timeout during backups

    Recently we have started getting "http upgrade request timed out" errors during backup, causing the jobs to fail. This is for both pve jobs and also jobs using the backup-client to backups some files from disk. This started fairly recently and seems to happen randomly . ie. the 2 first vm's in...

    Some Windows Server generates way too much dirty backups

    I was maybe hoping for some insight that does not require a phd in filesystems :-D The server is a bog standard server2016 domain controller, there is not anything special installed. The vm's disks are virtio, set with iotreahd on and discard on as the backing storage is zfs.
