In order to reduce egress charges during a storage migration from the cloud, I’m curious if this would work:
(1) Create bit-identical copy-compatible storage on a NAS
(2) Run an initial complete backup job (which would be file-identical to my last revision stored in the cloud) to NAS storage
(3) Selectively copy revisions from cloud storage to NAS
The reason for doing this would be to only download the difference chunks for revisions I’m interested in. This doesn’t seem intuitive as I’m basically wanting to go “backwards” in time, but it would save me a substantial amount of egress if it would work.
