how does retrospect handle virtual machines on client macs?

Recommended Posts

is there a product description of how VM's (vmware fusion or parallels) are handled using version 9?


for example let's say i am performing incremental backups and retrospect sees that there is a difference in the VM file. will it then backup that entire VM file or somehow just what is different about the file.

You could also install the Windows client in the VM and back up the contents (or a favorite folder) of the VM while the VM is running. Might be really slow, but would end up taking less space.

Works just fine here with a client on both Mac OS X and another on Windows under Paralells. (The server is Windows 7.6, but should be the same for Retrospect 9.
