OSSV baseline transfer question

[ Edited ]

Hi Guys,

I have a Windows host that I want to protect using OSSV. It's contains certain file shares that I'd like to backup to a FAS2020. I have one issue though. The server and the filer are connected over a not so fast WAN connection and the file shares I need to backup are about 150GB in total. Is there a way to do the baseline transfer onto a USB drive then onto the filer before resuming incremental backups directly between the Windows host and the filer? It would take ages to do the baseline transfer over WAN.

Appreciate any advice.
