But here's where the flaw in your analogy shows up
The disable ABS/EBD button in the car is plain as day in the dashboard for anyone to see and press.
So it can not be related to a hidden commandline option
Another approach; I can imagine you being on the road a lot, as many of us consultants are.
So when you are in your hotel, or on a location without fast internet (I mean slower then FTTH) then VEB consumes pretty much all available upstream bandwidth.
Especially because like most people you set up a secure connection to your workplace if you need data or need to work on shared projects.
And while the backup is running you can't do anything, VEB cripples pretty much everything network related at that moment for the duration of the backup.
Now I imagine not a lot of people have this particular case on a frequent basis and if they do they can change the schedule.
But to get back to the core of the issue, I don't think it is Veeam's intention to render the bandwidth useless during the backup.
Don't get me wrong I don't expect Veeam to come up with analyzing software or even latency measuring before starting the backup job.
I'm just trying to show scenario's where the Daily schedule can cripple quite some use cases.
Off course this is now fixed by commandline, and this helps us out a great deal, but I'm concerned for the users who travel (salesmen, consultants etc.) who will do most of their work on the road where this seriously impacts their work environments.
And in the line of quotes, here's one from Benjamin Franklin which really suits this discussion in my opinion: "People willing to trade their freedom for security deserve neither and will lose both"
