Enable by default the option "Perform copy only"

Hello,

is this possible to enable by default the option "Perform copy only" for transaction logs?

Context :
- We use a tier solution for our transaction logs backup
- If Veeam doesn't produce a backup with this option it will break our backup chain
- When adding VM to a backup job, we should think of selecting this option manually, I would like to set it by default to prevent any errors

More context :
- We don't use Veeam for our transaction logs backups because it duplicates the log file on the VM local disk at the backup and at the restoration step, some of our logs could be very large.

Thanks for helping
James

It's not possible to tweak the default option. However, it's possible to change these settings for all VMs added in automatic fashion via PowerShell. Thanks.

+1 for being able to change the global defaults for guest processing.
