What's the different between Snapshot full and full

Created: 01 Sep 2013 | 2 comments

Dear all ,

 

We are  using  symantec exec 12.5 for backup jobs.

When I try to restore backfile, I find that there are some backup file named (snapshot full) ,others are full.

What's the different between  Snapshot full and full ?

Snapshot full means the backup was taken using AOFO (with snapshot), whereas full means backup without AOFO (snapshot)

The backup which you perform using the AVVI or hyper-V agent will show "Snapshot full" irrespective if you select AOFO or not .The backup is a snapshot backup. When backing up using AWS you will see "Full" when backup is taken with AOFO not enabled.
