4k block test?

Post by stevil »

I know this is highly unlikely, but is there any 'backdoor' way to reduce the block size in VBR? :twisted:
I'd be really interested to see what impact it has on the size of the backup files we're generating. I don't really care about any hit it has on the performance of the ESXi/veeam servers.


Thanks

Hi Steve, no - there is no such backdoor available. But I can tell you for sure that you would see amazing impact on the size of backups, if you could do this. So, don't worry about confirming this personally :)

Do you think that such a feature may be added to a future release? I'm sure it would be welcomed with open arms by all Veeam enthusiasts :D

My product manager's magic 8 ball says "Outlook good" ;) but when I asked what release, the reply was "Cannot predict now" :D
