New Backup Job using existing backup files

Post by obm » Jan 07, 2012 6:29 pm

We purchased Veeam 6 Enterprise.
Job A has 1 TB full backup file and 14 small incrementals.
Job A has been accidentally deleted.

Creating a new Job A backing up exactly the same host, guest and in the same repository starts a new full 1TB backup.
Is there a way to setup the new Job A to use the previous backup file and just do an incremental?

Thanks

Hello,

Yes, that's possible. You should be using "Map backup" option located on the "storage" step of the backup job wizard to re-use existing backup files with a new job. Please see our User Guide (starting from page 94) for more info.

Thank you.
