Virtual Machine Incremental Forever

Hi there,

Is this possible?

- Always backup my Virtual Machines as incremental (after the first full)

- Only keep historic data for some months (say 3 month); Backup Exec would create Synthetic Full combining the Previous Full + Incremental, and delete the older incrementals afterwards

- Duplicate the Full Virtual Machines to tape

As far as I understand, this should relate to "Synthetic Backups", but Backup Exec seems to not do it for Virtual Machines.

Re: Virtual Machine Incremental Forever

Nope.  This is not possible.  As you already know, synthetic backups do not work for VM's.
