The VBK file when using Reversed Incremental changes after every job run.
Note: This function only works with Backup Jobs using Reversed Incremental.
Perform the following steps to alter Veeam to prevent the VBK from being renamed.
1. Open Registry Editor to HKLM\Software\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication
2. Create a DWORD named DisableVBKRename
3. Set Value = 1
4. Restart the Veeam Backup Server
This will cause the current VBK for the job to always be named after the job without a timestamp.
This feature will only work for new jobs or jobs you do "Delete from disk"/"Remove from backups" to remove the historical data from the VeeamBackup DB.
If a new active full is created for any reason, the old VBK’s name will be appended with a timestamp and the new active full VBK will be named after the job without a timestamp (see Fig. 2).
Please be aware that we’re making changes which will restrict access to product updates for users without an active contract.
