We have an ESX host that gets backup up with Veeam Backup 3 running on an Windows XP SP3 client over a Gbit link. On this client i have attached an usb external 1TB disk and it happlily does it's backups to that device.
Suppose i want to swap the external disk every night and take one of the disks home with me, how does Veeam handle this (assuming the newly attached drives get the same driveletter)? Does it just start a full backup all over? And what will happen when it finds the previous drive that already has a backup? Does it do an incremental from where it left off, or does it lose track of where/wat was backed up previously?
Any explanation of this (Veeam's reaction to swapping drives) would be greatly appreciated!
