Viewing Snapshots and Backups

In this article

    Available backups and snapshots are displayed under subnodes of the Backups node in the Home view:

    • The Snapshots subnode shows cloud-native snapshots of all protected Microsoft Azure VMs.

    In the working area, there is an <Appliance name> node. This node displays all snapshots to which your appliance has access, but for which backup policies were removed.

    For more information on how Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure creates cloud-native snapshots, see the Snapshot Chain section in the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure User Guide.

    • The External Repository subnode shows image-level backups of VMs and backups of SQL databases stored in standard backup repositories. Here, Veeam Backup & Replication marks decrypted backups with a special icon (Viewing Snapshots and Backups).

    For more information on how Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure creates backups, see the Backup Chain section in the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure User Guide.

    • The External Repository (Archive) subnode shows image-level backups stored in archive repositories. These backups are automatically decrypted.

    For more information on how Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure creates archive backups, see the Archive Backup Chain section in the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure User Guide.

    • The External Repository (Encrypted) subnode shows encrypted image-level backups (backups stored in encrypted Blob storage backup repositories) for which you did not specify the decryption password or the specified password does not match the current password of the repository.

    When you expand a node in the working area, the following icons describe which workloads are protected:
