I installed Veeam version 5.02.230 (32 bits) to backup and replcate some VM. It seems like it does not work like the older versions
For the replication, in the target directory it creates the vmdk files + a .vbk file for the replication that occured before
for the backup it now creates a .VBK file wich is about the size of the orginal VM + a .vib files. Even tough i selected to keep only 1 restore point on disk, it creates a .vib files for more than 1 restore point.
On the earlier version it would keep a .vrb files but only for the number of restore point i wanted to keeps
How does these news features works ?

The .vib file is an incremental backup and thus requires either a new full backup before it can start a new chain. This is all explained quite well in the first few pages of the users guide.

However replication engine hasn't been changed, so what you describe below is expected:
