Performing Quick Backup

You can create an ad-hoc incremental backup for one or more VMs — 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 VMs in the backup job and do not want to configure a new job or modify the existing one.

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

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

To perform quick backup, on the VMs tab, select the VM you need and click the Quick Backup button.

Performing Quick Backup 

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