ForceCreateMissingVBK Veeam 5 and Incremental backups

Is there anyway to make this reg hack work with Incremental backups with Veeam 5?

Backups fail after rotating USB drive

I get this error after backups run on a new disk in the rotation, there are four disks in total:
" Initializing target session TextFromTar failed Client error: File does not exist. File: [E:\Veeam Backups\Week12011-06-19T170044.vib]. Failed to restore file from local backup. VFS link: [summary.xml]. Target file: [MemFs://Tar2Text]. CHMOD mask: [1491206637]. "

Each time we swap disks, backups fail.

Trying this reg hack did not fix the issue:
In this case please try to create the DWORD property ForceCreateMissingVBK = 1 in the “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VeeaM \Veeam Backup and FastSCP” registry key

Thanks in advance!

Hello Chris,

Please use this registry hive to create a key mentioned above as old location works for v4 only:
Code: Select all
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VeeaM\Veeam Backup and Replication
