Excluding and Including disks from backup

Post by AdrianHinton »

Hi,

If I exclude a disk from a backup job and then include it again days or weeks later, will the job be ok on the next run? Will it see that disk? Do I need to do an active full? What is the procedure that I should follow when excluding and including disks in VBR Jobs?

Thank you.

Adrian, you can include disk later and it will be picked up during the next job run.

If a disk has been excluded from the very beginning, the job will backup it as a whole (full backup). Thanks.

Hi Vlad,

So the answer is that there are no steps needed such as taking an active full when including or excluding disks from the backup configuration.

Thank you.
