Create copy job from snapshot/point in time

Post by michaelbrandi » Jan 24, 2019 1:56 pm

Hi all,

I run a daily backup of our complete environment, and retain the last about 3 months of snapshots, does anyone know if there is somehow I can create my yearly backup, by making a copy job of a certain snapshot for a selections of my servers? (or have another idea for how to do this)

Hi Michael, it is not possible to create backup copy out of the storage snapshot, you should have regular backups for that (and it is not recommended to rely on snapshots as backups anyway, since they are lost along with the storage).
