In order to save a larger image file to some small capacity storage mediums, image files can be split into several files to fit different storage medium. In other words, you may split you former backup into several parts. In this article, you may learn about how to realize that goal easily.

When need to split backup in Server 2008?

What is incremental backup?

Q: I am having 3 drives D, E and F in my Server 2008, and each drive’s available space is 100GB. If I take full backup, it would come around 300GB. Is there any way of overcoming this problem or if there any chance to split full backup into 3 drives?

The question above was put forward by a user, and it remains an obsession for many people. When the data has been backed up to the image file, you can store the image file to a safer place. While during the process of image file storage, you may suffer from more problems as shown below:

  • You may find that the image file is too large to be stored in a corresponding storage device after backup. For instance, if the image file is 10GB, you just have a 6GB and 4GB USB Flash drive. Then, the only solution is to split the image file so that it could be stored easily.
  • Splitting backup will be very useful if you want to divide an image file into several smaller fragments so as to separately store it to other devices.
  • FAT32 partition only supports file size up to 4GB, but if you want to store an image file larger than 4GB into a FAT32 partition, you need to split the file into ones that smaller than 4GB.
