.vbk.upgrade files required?

Post by awiesen »


I upgraded to Veeam 4 awhile back and I noticed that in addition to my .vbk and .vrb files, I have .vbk.upgrade files.

Are these required? Can I delete them at some point? (I wonder in particular because I also back up files offsite and I wonder if I need to include these -- and for how long.)

Hello Alex,

Basically, .vbk.upgrade files were used while Veeam upgraded your storage files (VBK and VRB), as soon as you successfully run all the jobs at least once, these upgrade files are no longer needed, so you may safely remove them.

Thank you.
