Borg,

Yes to both, if the container is mounted and unlocked (presented to the OS as a regular volume). Thanks!

Thank you for clearing this up.
It is important in my case because such infrastructure will be the basis for a few dozen servers.
We will of course make tests before deployment, but I wanted to make sure there are no known issues.

[MERGED] Failed to start backup job Error: Nothing to backup

Post by MAA » May 24, 2019 9:19 am

Hello,
I have physical server with encrypted non-system drive, created via Volumes - Create New Volume - Encrypt a non-system partition/drive - Standard VeraCrypt Volume - Create encrypted volume and format it.
I try to backup this drive with modes "Volume level backup" or "File level backup"
but always get error:
"Failed to start backup job Error: Nothing to backup"
How to fix this issue?

>>please take a look at the existing discussion.
I tried workaround recomended by Dima P., and create symlink
mklink /d c:\disk2 d:\
but this workaround also do not work:

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].

[MERGED] Issues Backing Up Veracrypt Drives

MAA,

The workaround describes how to use VeraCrypt as a target for backup and not as a source.

In order to backup cryptocontainer you must backup the underlying physical volume via volume level backup mode (in such case cryptocontainer is processed as file and can be restore afterwards).
