MSP Backup & Recovery

Support for recovery to smaller target disks

In some cases, an MSP may seize an opportunity to upgrade a client's hardware when completing a Bare Metal Recovery using SolarWinds Backup. In an example scenario, they may upgrade a client to a Solid State Hard Drive (SSD) from a Hard Disk Drive (HDD).

 

Typically, SSDs come in smaller sizes than HDDs; this presents an issue when conducting a Bare Metal Recovery, as the existing requirement is that the target disk size is equal to (or larger than) the source disk.

 

Is there scope to implement this functionality?
