Pre-populate destination folder

I am running a backup of my entire Home server, 20TB. Running this over my network even at 10Gbe is going to take forever. I do Have some of the files already on the destination machine. Can I simply cut and paste them into the Destination folder to get a headstart on the backup? Will FBackup realise these files are already there and skip them? If this is not the way to do it, is there a way? Thanks in advance.

You cannot do that, as FBackup will recognize only the files it backed up, as it uses the .fkc backup catalog.
