Data Deduplication

If you plan to restore files from a VM running Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 or later and Data Deduplication is enabled for some VM volumes, for the restore process you must use Veeam Backup & Replication components running the following OSes:

  • [For copy to another location operations] The Veeam Backup & Replication console must be installed on a machine running Microsoft Windows Server 2012 or later. Data Deduplication must be enabled on this machine.

Limitations

  • Processing of reparse points is supported only for NTFS.
  • You cannot restore files from a backup created in the reverse incremental mode if the backup job is being performed. If the backup is created in the incremental backup mode and the backup job is being performed, you can restore files from any available restore point.
  • Volumes on the dynamic disks must not be split — spanned, striped and other types of split volumes are not supported.
