Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4
Veeam Agent Management Guide

Performing Active Full Backup

You can create an ad-hoc full backup — active full backup, and add it to the backup chain on the backup repository. The active full backup resets the backup chain. All subsequent incremental backups use the active full backup as a starting point. The previously used full backup will remain on the backup repository until it is removed from the backup chain according to the retention policy.

Performing Active Full Backup Note:

You can manually create active full backups only for Veeam Agent computers added to a Veeam Agent backup job managed by the backup server. This operation is not available for Veeam Agent backup jobs managed by Veeam Agent (backup policies).

To perform active full backup:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select Jobs.
  3. In the working area, select the Veeam Agent backup job and click Active Full on the ribbon or right-click the job and select Active Full.
