Dear Babak,

During the backup process in Hotadd mode, the disks of the source VM are attached to the Backup Proxy, so the VM data retrieved and written from\to local datastorage without using network connection.
Simply to say the VM data blocks are copied from the attached virtual disk to the repository that resides on the same VM in your case. Thanks!

1. Yes, it will be LAN-free.
2. In the scenario with dedicated components between the servers you should get better performance.
However, in a small environments the workload isn't high enough to see the difference. Thanks!

is this correct ?

we can use LAN-FREE just when all of our vms that we want get backups put on a shared storage that other hosts can see that shared storage is that correct ??

for example i don't have shared storage veeam and backup proxy and backup repository are one vm now want get backup from other vms that are put on the other esxi host with different disk now can i use LAN-FREE here?

You can use LAN-free even if all hosts have local storage, but it requires you to deploy a backup proxy with the repository on each of them.
However, that's not recommended approach to store the backups on the production datastorage. Thanks!

is that correct ?

That's correct.
You can deploy a backup proxy on each host, so only the data retrieval process will be in Hotadd mode (LAN-free), but data transferring will be through the network, since the repository will be on the other local storage. Thanks!
