  • The compression level is set to none (0),
  • The storage blocks size is set to Automatic.

The jobs are obtained with Get-VBRJob and piped down.

PS C:\PS> Get-VBRJob -Name "Backup Job 01", "Backup Job 02" | Set-VBRJobAdvancedStorageOptions -EnableDeduplication $True -CompressionLevel 0 -StorageBlockSize 7

Example 2

This command applies the optimal compression level (=5) to all jobs. The jobs are obtained with Get-VBRJob and piped down.

PS C:\PS> Get-VBRJob | Set-VBRJobAdvancedStorageOptions -CompressionLevel 5
