How It Works: Backup Methods

Table of contents

Veeam Backup & Replication offers two backup methods to back up virtual machines: reversed incremental and forward incremental (default setting).

However, before you start planning and setting up your jobs, consider that whatever backup method you choose for one job (reverse or forward Incremental, synthetic full, active full, etc.) is not necessarily best for all jobs.

It is strongly recommended that you choose job options individually for each job, considering their pros and cons, as described later (see the Choosing Backup Method section).
