Block level backup with File Level backup?

Post by enoch »

Hi all,

The backup entire computer and volume level backup both uses block level backup when doing incremental backups.

The file level backup options dosn't do that, is that by design or something that will be "fixed" in later versions?

The problem with file level backup currently is if retention is 30 days and we backup one fil which i 4 GB in size. If that file changes daily then Veeam Agent will backup 4 GB+ each day instead of only the changes (block) in the file.
