Prevent accidental move of files

Post by howartp » Jul 01, 2014 9:29 am

Hi,

When browsing our VM infrastructure in Veeam B&R > Files, VMware, vCenter etc, I just accidentally dragged a folder containing a live VM into another one.

Fortunately I spotted it and hit cancel quick enough, but could you introduce a warning dialog box 'Are you sure?' when drag-and-dropping inside the Files area?

Hi, actually this would not work regardless (even if you did not hit Cancel), because the running VM's files are locked by the host and cannot be moved. Thanks!
