Hi Stefan,

It's possible via Windows Task Scheduler and starting the backup via cmd.
How can I restore my backuped volume to a vmdk?

Via Veeam B&R. Check Export as virtual disk type of restore.

You can try the suggestion described over here > It is possible to create a backup on shutdown?

Stefan,

Maybe one more option for restoring as a vmdk: You can also create an empty VM and then do a Bare Metal restore to that VM. That is also what some people like to do

Hi Mike,

I tried this yesterday with my Win 10 machine.
The baremetal restore on a VM works fine!

Hi,

I'm sorry but I cannot shutdown the pc after a finished backup.
The Backup via windows task scheduler works fine.

How should my .bat file look?

Thank you!
Best regards

Stefan,

Thanks for the heads up. So, you would like to create a backup monthly and then automatically shut down your computer, is that correct?

Hi Dmitry,

yes, that's correct.
It work's now.

In my .bat file I made a second line with:

'shutdown-s -t 60'

Thank You
