Viewing Backup Properties

In this article

    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.

    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:
