Resize vhdx

Just a quick question. When I resize a gen2 machine on the fly (shrink from disk management inside the vm, then shrink in Hyper-V Manager), Veeam backups then fail because the block size is different. Is there any way to update that backup job to succeed rather than having to create a new job?

Try to initiate a new full job pass for this VM, in this case new job creation might not be required.

Cheers. Is that a case of right clicking the job, then selecting active full..?

Yes, that's right. Please be aware that it will initiate full backup for all VMs in the job. Please let us know how it goes.

Thanks, I'll give it a try next time I'm at the clients. Feel free to close the thread now :)
