2) How do i do the full backup -> to be incremental in the below ps1 script ?

Thanks in advanced,

here's the script:

$Directory = "D:\VeemBackups"

# Desired compression level (Optional; Possible values: 0 - None, 4 - Dedupe-friendly, 5 - Optimal, 6 - High, 9 - Extreme)

1) List only names of those VMs that you want to backup. Those can be collected from the said folder in automatic fashion with the use of PowerCLI.
2) It's not possible, as VeeamZIP creates only full backups.

Thanks.
