I am very new to the Barracuda backup system.

 

I have a Barracuda Backup 190.

 

When I look at my dashboard through the web interface it shows I have 101.9GB stored Local and 15.2GB stored on the cloud.

 

I have my sources setup to replicate to the cloud.

 

Would you expect to see that big a difference or did this get setup wrong.

I have noticed this on our system as well.  We have over 3 terabytes on our local unit but the cloud dash shows 706 GB.  The only thing I can think of is that it may have something to do with the retention policies and the way Barracuda consolidates the data versions and backs up only what is relevant.  Kind of scary, but I did a bare metal restore of one of our servers from the cloud once and everything on that server seemed to get restored.  

 

I hope I'm write.
