I have been using Backup Exec for a decade or more now and I am testing out Veeam as a replacement for Hyper-V backups. The scenario I used before for my lab (where I do most of my work in) was:
Backup the entire environment fully to a removable eSATA array (~12TB) which would be done once a month and when done be taken offsite. Then have every other day differentials go to a local disk in the host so if I needed access to a recently removed or changed file I could.
Since the terminology is so different between the systems I am not sure how Veeam truly handles removable/file level media and scenarios like this. I know Veeam doesn't really do file level incremental/differential backups, so I am not sure if I can do incremental/differential backups to a local disk while having the full backup offline?
My topology is I have a single Hyper-V host, running Server 2012. I have Veeam installed in a VM. I have the backup media directly connected to the host and I am using the OnHost backup topology with Veeam just running it and the host backing up direct to either the eSATA array, or the local SATA disk for differentials.
Any help or guidance would be appreciated
