What can be done with a one time backup?

It is clear that one time backup can be recoverd to the machine it has created from, but beside that: 

1- Is it possible to create an increamental backup of a server based on its previous "one time backup" ?

2- Is it possible to recover or convert a "one time backup" to a new or existing VM?

  • 1. No.  If you need incremental backups, use a scheduled job.

    2. Yes.  You can convert the backup to a new VM, not an existing one, if the backup is SDR-capable.

      Thanks pkh for your reply.

      It is mensioned some where in the forum that UEFI  enabled machines can not be converted to VM. Isn't there a work around? 

      Also I tried to convert my one time backup to a Hyper-V VM but it seems Endpoint Security on the HyperV machine causes some problem for the process. can you provide me with a solution? Or shall I ask this in a seperate tpoic? (I have seen a post for BE 2012 for the same problem but it seems too old to be exact.)

        If Endpoint is preventing it you need to find out how to exclude this process from the scan.
