Hyper-V (Server 2016) - Differential Backup Support for VMs


I am running Backup Exec 20.1 on Server 2016 STD connected to an IBM LTO-7 Fibre Channel Ultrium Tape Library & Tape Drive.

The same Server (that does the backups) runs Hyper-V and has a very large VM of about 3 Terabyte. It takes a good 14 hours to backup this VM (doing a granular backup). I would like to know if Backup Exec 20.1 supports differential backups of Hyper-V Virtual Server our would I have to backup the entire VM every day in order to have a usable full backup to recover from in case of data loss on the VM.

I can supply more info. on the Backup Exec or Hyper-V setup if required.

Thank you,
