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.

Note

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:
