  • Hyper-V RAM files backed up
    Posted: 04-29-2017, 5:53 PM

    Hi All

    I've noticed that the backup size of the incremental backups on our main Windows server have been growing larger over time. The subclient configuration is such that incrementals include the System state.  Browsing the most recent job I can see that the following folder is being backed up :

    "programdata\microsoft\windows\hyper-v\virtual-machines"

    This seems to contain the VM RAM files. We're also running the Hyper-V backup agent. As best as I know, excluding the above folder shouldn't affect the hyper-v backup agent, should it  ?

    Client  :  Windows  Server 2012R2, Simpana 10 SP13+hotfixes, File System, VSS Provider, Driver for File  Recalls, Active Directory agent, Virtual Server agent

    Server : Windows  Server 2012, Simpana 10  SP13 + hotfixes

    Thanks in advance

     

    Simon
