Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows version 4.0 offers the parallel disk processing feature. Parallel disk processing allows to transfer data from several disks to the target location simultaneously. By default, parallel disk processing is limited by the number of concurrent tasks that are available on the backup repository. To disable parallel processing or decrease the limit, use registry keys described below.
Create the following registry keys on the machine where Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows is installed:
To disable parallel disk processing:
Key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Endpoint Backup Type: DWORD Name: EnableParallelDiskProcessing Value: 0Simply remove the key or change the value to 1 to re-enable parallel processing.
To change the parallel disk processing limit:
Key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Endpoint Backup Type: DWORD Name: ParallelProcessingMaxConcurrentDisks Value: Nwhere "N" is the allowed number of concurrent tasks. For example, to allow simultaneous processing of 2 disks, change the value to 2.
