my .VBK files keep growing and I'm wondering why.
I'm using Veeam Endpoint for 2 months and I'm very impressed about it's speed. I installed it on a few PCs that only have some programs installed, so the initial backup size was around 30-40 GB only. Backup destination is a shared drive. On one of these PC I forgot to delete some huge obsolete archives, so the initial backup was about 120 GB on that PC. After the initial backup, I deleted these archives from this PC right away, hoping that some day the backup size will shrink.
Meanwhile, I reduced the number of days to keep restore points to 3 days for tests, so VIB files are merged into the VKB without problems, but the VBK keeps growing with each merge. These huge archives are no longer part of any restore point, but it seems Veeam Endpoint still keeps this data in the VBK file.
Is this really the intended behaviour?
Can I enforce a purge of the VBK file or will this happens automatically at some point?
