I have a problem concerning VeeamZip. I want to backup with VeeamZIP or Veeam Backup and Replication to an external disc.
- The source disc is for example a 4 TB VMware Volume (ESX)
- The Destination disc is a 3 TB external disc
- The files on the source disc is 1 TB.
The Problem now is, that the backup always says this: "File <unspecified filename> is larger than the maximum size supported by datastore '<unspecified datastore> Creating VM snapshot"
Veeam seems to check the size of the source disc and if it COULD fix. It does not try it.
Can I bypass this check?! If veeam would simply make the backup, then it would fit the Destination 3 TB drive
but it doesn't
And I can't shrink the source without spending a lot of work and time for it.
Thanks for your help!!
