Veeam Agent File backup big changes

Post by R.Stuivenberg » May 21, 2019 6:48 am

Hi All,

I have noticed that file level backup takes a lot of time and is very large with his changes.

Does anyone else also have this issue?

I know that other backup software checks the file and is only copying the changed blocks and not the whole file.

Does anyone know if Veeam is also going to change this?

Best Regards,

Richard

Hello,
this behavior is expected because your run a "file level backup (slower)" (quoting the UI).

You can change to block level backup by doing the following:
- choose file level backup as you already did
- select the volume
- exclude all folders you don't want to backup

Best regards,
Hannes
