running incremental backup

Post by fadygh » Apr 19, 2016 9:55 am

Hello everyone I'm new to veeam I installed the free version on my desktop windows 8.1 and created a backup schedule on a network share but I noticed that each time the backup schedule starts it creates a full backup copy on the shared network, and I didn't find the option to create an incremental backup is there any trick or the free version only supports full backups

Best

Hi,

What is your retention policy? Also have you applied any registry keys, by any chance? If not, then is there anything that might clean up the shared folder every day?

Thank you.

Can you please confirm that you see only VBK files in the destination target?

I found that the backup is failing for some reason so it's creating another full backup

Feel free to open a support case to understand the reason for backup job failure. Once it is resolved, you would be able to run incremental job passes.
