Backup job disk exclusion question

Post by jlo »

The target disk that need to exclude from backup is the (E: drive) in Windows Server. Just want to backup C and D drive only.
In "Edit Backup Job". There is a place for select "disks to process". But I've no idea which *disk* represented C and D drive.
In "Selected disks". There are 4 types of disks
IDE SCSI SATA NVMe
Each type shows me a large number of disks
IDE (0:0) to IDE (1:1), total 4
SCSI (0:0) to SCSI (3:64), total 260
SATA (0:0) to SATA (3:29), total 120
NVMe (0:0) to NVMe (3:14), total 60
I found that all my VMs shows *that* number of selection. Even those which just has 1 disk volume.
How can I select the correct disk that need to backup?

Hello,
I always do it by clicking on the VM in vCenter -> edit settings -> read the ID
