Creating Active Full Backups

You can manually create an ad-hoc full backup — active full backup, and add it to the backup chain on the target backup repository. Active full backup can be helpful if you want to change backup copy job settings, for example, enable or disable encryption. Veeam Backup & Replication will apply new settings starting from this full backup.

To create an active full backup manually:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select the Backup Copy node under Jobs.
  3. In the working area, select the backup copy job and click Active Full on the ribbon or right-click the backup copy job and select Active Full. Veeam Backup & Replication will start a new backup copy interval, copy data from the source backup repository and save it in a full backup file on the target backup repository.
