Data protector & Veeam images

HP Recommended

Hey

 

I'm trying to backup veeam files (vbk , vib) using HPDP incrémental mode . The goal is to backup only new files with something like 2 weeks retention

 

So i did a first complete backup of my veeam directory with permanent retention , and then modified the job to set a 2 weeks retention for the following backups:  it did the trick for 2 weeks but this morning , HPDP did a new complete backup , not only the last files created during the night

 

Veeam retetion is also 2 weeks so maybe this behavior is normal ...when the files composing the full backup reference are deleted , the next backup becomes a complete backup

 

Any idea? Maybe this is not the correct method to backup this kind of files ...i have seen a post where the administrators use symbolic links in a dedicated backup directory to backup only the files they need
