Error in VBK Extract Utility

Veeam Logoby WuttiW » Thu Sep 24, 2015 12:16 pm

When we opens our 4tb vbk file ( with Vbk extract tool ), we get an "Please Wait" Message and the tool generates a "bad allocation" error message.

what can we do ? :)

You could try importing the VBK into VBR (even the free version) and extracting the data that way. Or obviously continue working with support to find the resolution.

Is there any limitation on the size of .VBK or number of the VMS on the .VBK to use the tools
Thanks

There should be none, but do you see an opposite behaviour?

I think that when the .VBK file exceeds 6TB, the tool generates a "bad allocation" error message
I searched everywhere but I did not find the info about the limitation

Extract.exe uses 32-bit architecture and cannot work with files exceeding certain limit (several TB) therefore. Apologize for confusion caused.

There are plans to release 64-bit version down the road. However, we cannot provide any ETA for now.

Thanks.

[MERGED] 64Bit Veeam.Backup.Extractor.exe

Veeam Logoby downiej » Wed Apr 05, 2017 11:04 am

Can you please build a 64 bit variant of Veeam.Backup.Extractor.exe and Extractor.exe to allow better memory management on bare metal extract of virtual machines from very large backup files.

There is a current limit on the size of VBK file (not sure what it is but 1Tb file fails) and when implementing a disaster recovery solution to restore from bare metal I would like the ability to restore from my backup file (initial base build of Veeam environment into which I can import my incremental backups for full restore).

Currently to get round this I am backing up the core VM's for Veeam to a separate (small) backup file to allow base recovery.

Thanks,

Jim.
