Backup Copy Job: Copy only Full Backups

Veeam Logoby dropped91 » Thu Feb 02, 2017 1:00 pm

Hi,

I configured on our Branch Office a forever incremental Backup Job with Active Full on saturday (Every Saturday: Active Full; during the week: incremental)

Now I want to configure a Backup Copy Job to our Headquarters that runs on wednesday and copy ONLY the latest Full Backup. I don't need the incremental Backups at our Headquarters from the Branch Office.


How can I do that?

Hi,

So if I outstood it right, I doesn't have any chance to ignore the incremenatal backups?

Hi,

The backup copy job does not just copy, backup files, this feature creates a separate backup chain and copy most recent state of VMs from the source repository.
You can enable GFS retention in the backup copy job and configure it to keep weekly backups on Wednesday and retain as many as you need, also it is important to enable active full (select the “Read the entire restore point from source…” check box).

So if I outstood it right, I doesn't have any chance to ignore the incremenatal backups?

There is a possible workaround for you to use file copy job.

Thanks!
