Azure VM Backup - How to perform multiple times a day RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    The Azure VM backup policy has only two options; Daily & Weekly. So, we won’t be able to schedule multiple backups in a day (will have to run them manually from portal).


    1.Option: Backup Now – used for manually triggering the backup for VM à is it a incremental backup (Full snapshot but only changes are sent to Vault) or it takes a full backup (Full snapshot & transferring the full data again to the Vault). there a powershell script which can be used as a runbook to take multiple backups of a VM in a single day (twice)? If yes, will these backups be incremental or full on each occasion?
