I have some crazy problem using Veeam B&R v184.108.40.2061 to backup some virtual machine based on ESXi 5.5.0 and vSphere 5.5.0.
I created four jobs to backup all VMs.
All jobs are configured to "incremental backup and synthetic full on friday with five restore points".
Having a look into the folders where the backup is placed, I see the following results:
1st and 4th job:
- Full on 05.03.
- four incremental backups on 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th
- 2nd Full on 12.03.
- two incremental backups on 14th and 15th
2nd and 3rd job:
- Full on 28.02.
- twelve incremental backups starting on 29th
Why are these four jobs creating different files on filesystem?
Is there a possible configuration to create this scenario?
1. Full backup
2. four incremental
3. Create synthetic full and delete 1. full to save disk storage
Is the option"transform previous..." the one I need?
