Making some mind games regarding veeam b&r just now, a question arose.
Say we have a fresh VM without snapshot. We work for 5 days and create a snapshot. We work further 5 days with this VM than we make a backup of it using veeam b&r.
After a few days we crash the VM horribly and need to restore it so we restore the veeam b&r backup.
What happens to the snapshot we created on day 5? Is it still present in vmware and more important if it is still present, is it still usable or would we produce datagarbage when roling back to that snapshot after we had restored with veeam?
what exactly is veeam copying to backup storage? just the normal vmdks along with vmx and other definition files (would be state of fresh VM) or the whole VM folder including the snapshots delta file (would be state of snapshot1)?
