I understand BitLocker is supported but there are some machines in the school (read: place with low budgets) which don't have a TPM and are therefore tricky to use BitLocker on unless we want to use startup keys on USB sticks (which we don't).
On one of the clients with Checkpoint Disk Encryption installed I installed Veeam and set up a file-level backup of the C:\Users directory to backup the user files. Obviously that means I can't do a BMR, but that's less of an issue than them losing their files. The client completed it's first backup quite happily, but for some reason all the subsequent ones are having a real problem completing with VSS errors coming up...
- Code: Select all
Creating VSS snapshot Error: Failed to create snapshot: Backup job failed. Cannot create a shadow copy of the volumes containing writer's data. VSS asynchronous operation is not completed. Operation: [Shadow copies commit]. Code: [0x80042306].
After a clean reboot however, the machine will actually complete a backup successfully, provided the backup is run pretty rapidly after startup, so obviously Veeam CAN do the backups, something must just be stopping it after the machine has been on for a while..
While I realise there may be no immediate way to do a full volume backup, it feels like its SO close to being able to do file-level that it'd be 'good enough' for us for now. It would be really great if something could be done to allow file-level to work properly.
I've verified this one two different machines too so it's not just some quirk on the first machine I tried.
I'm opening up another ticket explaining I'm just after file-level and will update when I have the ticket number.
