Feature Request - Add normal forward incremental option

Veeam Logoby Anguel » Thu Feb 11, 2016 2:43 pm

Endpoint backups are very good candidates for deduplication when stored using Veeam B&R and Server 2012 R2, especially because the same OS and software are often installed on multiple workstations.

Unfortunatley, Veeam Endpoint Backup currently only supports the FOREVER forward incremental option which is not usable with deduplication because of regular full backup transformations as discussed here:
veeam-backup-replication-f2/2012-r2-dedupe-issue-t23656-30.html#p180299

Therefore I would kindly ask you to consider implementing a NORMAL forward incremental option that makes it possible to use VEB with VBR and deduplication.
Thank you in advance.

Hi Anguel,

Thanks. We do have plans to provide this option in next major release – thanks for pushing :wink:
