i have read veeam user guide page 419 , 420 about difference between stop immediately job and gracefull stop job
but has question about that :
1- i select stop immediately on my job when veeam get snapshot from machine now after it has been stopped when i see in my repository there is a backup file with name dns.70D2017-11-27T102015.vbk and the size is 30MB now i want to know can i use from this backup file or this is not usefull?????
2- i select force gracefull on my job when veeam get snapshot from machine now after it has been stopped when i see in my repository there is a backup file with name dns.70D2017-11-27T102943.vbk and the size is 17.7GB now i want to know can i use from this backup file or this is not usefull?????

1. Since you used "Stop immediately", the job terminated instantly, thus the restore point is not usable. 2. In case of "Gracefull stop" the VMs that has succeeded to process and VMs that are being processed will have usable restore points. If you have only one VM in the job then it will be usable.
