Backup to tape

Post by BarryCoombs »

When archieving your Veeam backups to tape daily am I best on just selecting to backup the full backup file? i.e. the vbk files. I don't really wont to be backing up the rollbacks daily as well as the full backup as its just a waste of valuable disk space.

Hi Barry, yes you only need to backup VBK file. Because Veeam Backup uses synthetic backup, the VBK file always represents full backup of the latest state. VBK file name always stays the same, making it easy in terms of scripting.
