Performing Quick Backup

You can create an ad-hoc incremental backup for one or more machines — quick backup. This backup will be added to the backup chain in the corresponding backup repository. Quick backup can be helpful if you want to produce an additional restore point for one or more machines in the backup job and do not want to configure a new job or modify the existing one.

Quick backup can be performed for machines that meet the following requirements:

  • A backup job processing the machine exists on the backup server.
  • A full backup file for the machine exists in the backup repository.


Performing Quick BackupNote:

Quick backup is not available for vCloud Director VMs and Veeam Agent machines.

To perform quick backup, on the Machines tab, select the machine you need and click Quick Backup.

Veeam Backup & Replication will trigger a backup job to create a new incremental restore point for the selected machine(s). Details of the running quick backup operation are displayed in the job session window.
