Azure Backup for Azure Virtual Machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a virtual machine running on Azure using two 4TB disks. In total there is about 600GB being stored on the VM. I was looking into creating a Recovery Vault for the VM Backup but would like to see if anyone could answer these couple questions:

    1. If I have a daily backup policy with a retention for 60 days. I assume that means the backup will create a new backup everyday until there are 60 after which it will start removing the oldest one, right?
    2. I see the pricing for the backup is $10 for every 500GB. Would I be charged for the 4TB disk space or just the 600GB data thats stored?

    I really appreciate the time anyone takes to help me with these questions.
