Hi Everyone

 

We're attempting to use Azure Backup to backup files and folders from an onprem server to Azure.

We're trying to follow the procedure outlined in the following Microsoft doc

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/backup/backup-azure-backup-import-export

 

We have about 25TB of data and want to seed this from the source server to a destination machine on the network with 3x 10TB drives attached.

 

We've set up a Recovery Services Vault

We're needing some additional information on where to get

1. The Azure Storage Account details

2. Azure Storage Account Container details.

 

What does Azure Backup do when one of the 10TB drive gets full, will it automatically use the other 10TB drives, or will it ask to specify a drive letter?

 

I'm looking for some resources to describe the whole process from end to end, its just not that clear on the MS Documentation.

 

Thanks very much
