Good morning,
for a VM I would like to do only one full backup weekly. Each time the job is run, the full backup must be recreated, not incremental. How can I set the job?

Thank you

@GianluigiThank you for your question. Please perform the following:

- Edit the backup job.

- Go to the tab "option".

- Edit the "Full Backup Settings" with the "Create full backup" option to "Always."

We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Hello, 

 

I am looking at the full backup. 

To make sure i understand correctly ;

The bacukp stored are using a proprietary format ?

I don't see the vmdk of the VMs but a raw file instead.

Does it means that they only be used/exported using Nakivo and not copy/paste directly ?

Thanks

Hello,@anktarius, yes, backups are stored in a proprietary format. Nothing inside a repository shouldn't be accessed manually (unless guided by NAKIVO support) or by any third-party software. Only NAKIVO software should read/write to a repository. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
