Viewing Snapshots and Backups
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. Under this node, you can see all snapshots to which your appliance has access, but for which backup policies were removed.

- The External Repository subnode shows image-level backups created by backup policies. Here, Veeam Backup & Replication marks decrypted backups with a special icon ().
