    Copy a file from Backup HDD
    My server has a HDD only for backup. I have a file of 2 GB in this HDD.
    I need to download this file to my machine. Is there a way to download it directly?
    I tried to transfer the file to the Master HDD, but the SERVER LOAD greatly increases and locks the server.
    Anybody can help me, please?

    You can make a soft link to that backup folder under your document root

    eg : ln -s /home/user/public_html/dowload /backup/download

    Now browse it and download
