Virutal stations backup software

Post by Mandorr » Sat Sep 19, 2020 6:47 pm

Hi

I'm looking for an alternativ to backup my VMs in my QNAP TS-877.
For some resens I don't trust the built in funktion in VirtualizationStation

I found the the Hyper Data Protector myt be a good alternativ and a screenshot the shows support for VirtualizationStation backups.
However it doesn't seems to support that any longer.

Any suggestions to where I could find an alternative?

you could stop your VM images and back them up via HBS3

not sure why you don't trust the VMStation backup (no reasoning given)

Hello! I was looking for an alternative myself as I have had a much munched on restore of my Windows Server 2019. The restored copy was unusable as my keys, certs and backups were missing. My server is also highly tweaked to be able to run Essentials on it. I understand Mandorr's need, though I'm not quite sure if his reasoning is similar to my own. Stopping the VM is not always an option (though I'll make time for it), but certainly heartbreaking that restore does not work for the server. Retweaking is a royal pain in the ** for sure.
