According to BE technotes, I cannot get GRT backups for my VMware guests running Windows when my BE appliance is not equal to or greater than the guest O/S.  So when will the 3600 appliance be upgraded to Windows 2012 R2?  And what will we have to do to receive it?  [This is posted here, because tech support directed me here.]

This perception is understandable given the number of products in the marketplace that simply address backup and recovery alone. Narrow capabilities that do not even cater to all areas of the infrastructure have a tendency to worsen ...

Sure if its 4 or 5 files, no problem. If it's 100's of files within a directory but not all files, it would be nice to know just how many you have selected. On top of that, as you select files, the total amount of space as ...
