File Level Restore and Backup the same Virtual Machine

Post by gonza » Dec 04, 2014 4:36 pm

Hello,

What if I have running one Job Restore File Level Windows (last Backup file vbk) and I run the Daily Job Incremental (Reversed Incremental) about the same Virtual Machine?

Thanks

You mean what happens if you try to backup partially restored VM? Thanks.

More or less.

It will coincide two Jobs, one job of restore and one job of backup.

The .vbk file will be locked by restoration activity, and backup job won't be able to perform incremental cycle. Thanks.
