Is there a solution for ensuring the full backup also if the scheduled time for full backup has been missed? Currently - if the scheduled time for full backup has been missed - SSR 2013 continues with incremental backups. This can result in a continuity  of incremental backups with no intermediate full backup. Many thanks - Michael

Hi, I'm using NBU 7.6 to back up a Windows 2008 R2 server. After a successful backup, a big file 'track_journal.v1.dat' (> 600MB) is generated on the client box. What does the file used for? Can I remove it? Thanks!

updated idea 27 Mar 2015
SSR job scheduling, even advanced, is limited to selecting days in a week. The ability to schedule jobs to run biweekly, monthly, bimonthly, etc. would be appreciated. There are areas and files that are not high priority but still needing to be backed up. Using File/directory backup is adequate instead of the more complex disk backup with specific directories selected.
updated idea 25 Mar 2015
When I implemented file/directory backup to protect client personal files instead of using disk backup functions with directory selection, I was surprised when the console showed no management capabilies in this area. I suggest that the file/directory backup functionality be enhanced to provide: Creation of a "saveset" approach to file/directory in the same way disk backups are handled. Using ...

I'd like a way to schedule or chain a restore job on to a VM backup job. This could be used to create a standby VM at a local or offsite location. Currently, the only way to do this is to treat a VM like a physical machine.. which makes little sense.

In reading several posts about management of backup job files, setup files, etc. could this information be stored in the .SVI files. There is already the capability to managed job sets using a master to identify all of the associated files. It would seem that this approach would be a place to store information on the job control information used to create the file and a place to store the ...

With the move to SSR 2013, several NAS solutions don't function as they did in earlier versions. Backup (disk) jobs that worked under 2011 and earlier now fail with a file settings error. We are talking about solutions like QNAP and not enterprise solutions or ones based on Windows Server. The failure reporting from SSR provides no insight into what is actually failing, just that jobs are not ...
new idea 25 Mar 2015
SSR does not really seem to know how to manage/limit the on-disk backup created by disk backup jobs. For small businesses, having a better automated solution to insure that jobs are actually limited and managed according to the size, number of files on disk, is critical. These groups do not have the staffing to look after backups. Testing by setting the job file limit on disk to 3 still ...
new idea 25 Mar 2015
I have used SSR for a number of years to support both home and small business environments. One of the main issues the lack of being able to rebuild a client's SSR backup resources. Most backup environments used NAS storage for the actual backup files. When the client is rebuilt, moves to another system, etc., the SSR backup information is lost and no way to tell SSR to scan directory (tree) ...

new known issue 11 Jul 2014
Once Hotfixes 217591 or 218257 are installed to Backup Exec 2014, either manually or via Live update, the BkupInst2014.htm install log file will incorrectly list them as being 'Backup Exec (TM) 2012 Patch... '. This is a display issue in the install log only and will not affect the operation of Backup Exec 2014.
