BE2012 SP2 Backup of Windows Server 2012 deduplicated data

Created: 29 Jul 2013 | 2 comments

Hello,

I have upgraded to Backup Exec 2012 SP2 and attempted to backup data on a Windows Server 2012 deduplicated volume via the standard windows remote agent.

The total data was 250Gb, however my final backup set size was only 400Mb. The job was reported as sucessful - however it clearly wasnt. It appears to only have backed up the file dedupe metadata and not actually reinflated the original data.

Accoring to the documentation it should support backing up 2012 deduplated data (and will be stored on backup media un-deduplicated).

Thanks,

Ben

Have you tried doing a re-directed restore to a non-dedup directory and see what is the result?

Hi

No I havent, but there is only 400Mb on the tape, so cant possibly work.

Thanks
