Update process and file backup

Two quick questions.
I need to upgrade to current version. Will install over last version work?

Does windows 10 boot flash drive bare metal work?

I would like to also push a file by file copy backup to a NAS in addition to my veritas image. Can this product do that?

Thanks,
BJB

You can upgrade from VSR 16 to VSR 18, yes. 

For the additional copy you can use the offsite copy feature.

When you create a flash drive that contains the VSR recovery disk, you can boot that drive and run a bare metal recovery.

Markus,

On the off site copy feature, is that another copy of the image file or a file by copy of the original data?

 

As far as the bare restore, I know how it should work. My question relates to the many issues we had making bare metal boot discs/drives with Veritas 16 in 64 bit Windows 10.  Perhaps those issues have passed.

 

Thanks,

BJB

I think it a copy of the image file. For the bare metal issues did you take a look at the release notes of VSR 18, 18 SP1 and 18 SP2?
