FM11 Server Backups Degrade Server Performance

Your post

We have upgraded from FMS 8 to FMS 11 and faster hardware (now a mac mini server vs was an early mac mini). Every hour the database is backed up by FMS to the local drive. With FMS 8 the server continued to serve without any noticable reduction in performance.  Now in 11 with the same database it slows dramatically whilst writing the backup and takes a couple of minutes to write it and delete the old files.  In all aspects the new hardware is faster and the database is the same size as before and not that big at 500mb.    Any suggestions on how to reduce the impact of the backups.  Thanks
