Viewing Backup Properties
You can view summary information about backups created by backup copy jobs. The summary information provides the following data: available restore points, date of restore points creation, compression and deduplication ratios, data size and backup size.
Data Size represents the size of a backup file before compression and deduplication. Backup Size represents the size of a backup file after compression and deduplication.
In the summary information, Veeam Backup & Replication displays data about restore points created by the short-term retention scheme and archive restore points created by the GFS retention scheme (if GFS retention is enabled). Archive restore points are marked with the following letters:
- R — full backups created with the short-term retention scheme or active full backups
- W — weekly backups
- M — monthly backups
- Y — yearly backups
In the summary information, you can also see the following icons:
