I would like the ability to manage individual restore points and backup chains, either by deleting or moving them via the Veeam GUI.
1. If I run two active full backups of a VM in one day (for testing/troubleshooting etc) and want to delete one of them, I can't delete a single restore point without having a mismatch between the Veeam database and the restore points that exist on disk.
2. I have multiple extents in scale out repositories. These repositories are running MS software deduplication which gives excellent results with Veeam, but can be pretty slow to dedupe data since it is not inline deduplication.
If I wish to retire an extent from a scale-out repository and evacuate backups, there is no possible way to do this when I have (for example) ~200TB of reconstituted data and only ~30TB of storage to move it to. If I could move individual backup chains or data from entire jobs to another extent in the scale-out repository, I would be able to retire the extent in stages as Windows deduplication on the target repository would have time to dedupe everything.
3. I have had an issue where due to an extent running out of free space, Veeam was not able to meet the Data Locality policy and place all dependant backup files on the same extent. This meant I had a single .vib on a separate extent.
Once the free space issues were resolved, I want to get all dependent files back to a single extent. There is no way to do this.
