For forensics purposes, this would be very useful (probably run into issues with bitlockered/encrypted drives doing this, though...)

This would be useful in many cases as many people suggested.

@Steve Kratz,

You have a valid point. If the drive is bitlockered we won't be able to read the data. However, if you have the bitlocker key to unlock it (and I assume this is a corporate environment so...) would that be enough so you can take the backup as an administrator? (That would also block unjustified use of the ISO since only the admin or technician would be able to do it...)

Just a thought, feedback is welcome ;-)

[MERGED] Backup via recovery media

Veeam Logoby Houns89 » Tue May 02, 2017 12:14 pm

Hello,

one short question:
is it possible to create a backup with the recovery media?

my situation:
I often have to test IPCs with different software installations and/or windows installations with special drivers or programs.
I'd like to create backup before the first windows start.
So I could always start again with the original setup.


Sorry for my stupid question.
At the moment I'm using veeam endpoint backup free. But I didn't find this feature.
Is there a workaround via the commandline?


Thanks and kind regards,
Houns

Currently, creating backups from the recovery media is not possible.

Another vote for full and file level backups from the recovery media to USB, network share or booting from WDS like environment.
Icing on the cake would be Windows, Linux and OSX support.
Use case: in a remote location with no repository access. Or factory image stored on the local hard drive on separate partition.

Thanks for listening Veeam! :D

I know it's my topic, but just wanted to say that I'm still watching it.
At the moment I sometimes install Veeam just for one-time-backups ;)
