Virtual Machine Specific Settings in the HubStor Backup Service

If you select a virtual machine in the "All Content" hierarchy, you will see additional tabs specific to virtual machines. We will cover these additional tabs in this article.

For information about tabs that are common to all nodes, please see THE ALL CONTENT NODE IN THE HUBSTOR BACKUP SERVICE.


Change Tracking (Incrementals) Supported: A read-only checkbox that indicates whether the source platform supports incremental backups.
Change Tracking (Incrementals) Enabled: Select this option to enable Changed Block Tracking for this VM. Changed Block Tracking is required to allow the HubStor Backup Service to perform incremental backups. This setting can be enabled automatically for all VMs. See the backup setting "Auto-Enable VMs for Incremental Backups" in SETTINGS FOR THE HUBSTOR BACKUP SERVICE to enable this option.
Non-Quiesced Snapshots: Quiesced snapshots force the guest operating system to place applications or files in a state suitable for backing up. You have the option to inherit the global setting, or specifically allow or disallow quiesced snapshots for this VM. Setting the “Non-Quiesced Snapshots” option to “Force” will cause the first and only snapshot attempt made for the VM to be a non-quiesced snapshot.  In general, you should only select the “Force” option when there is a specific need to override quiescing snapshots for the given VM.

Disk & Snapshots

You can choose the individual drives on the selected VM that you wish to be backed up.
You can also right click a VM snapshot in the lower pane to back up the snapshot immediately.

Backup Sets

A backup set consists of a full backup, plus optional incremental backups. This pane displays running and completed backup sets. Expand a backup set and right click a full or incremental backup to view properties of the backup set, rename a backup, restore a backup, stop a backup, delete a backup, and delete all backups with errors for the selected VM.

Backup Properties


In the backup properties, you can view general properties of the selected backup.


You can also view and save a log specific to the selected backup.


The Restores tab displays restore operations that you have performed on this VM.

Right click a restore job to stop a currently running restore operation, and display properties of the restore operation.

Restore Properties


In the restore properties, you can view general properties of the selected restore job.


You can also view and save a log specific to the selected restore job.
