Restore of changed data only on Virtual Disks.

Restore of changed data only on Virtual Disks.

Hello, currently we can restore changed data on a Virtual Disk only from a snapshot. We would like to be able to do the same with an external media backup as well.

Hi @Kozloviv ,

today this is only possible from a snapshot, that's right. And the procedure can only work when individual block-level data is addressable in form of a snapshot because the procedure involves a block-level comparison between source and target. That's too complex to implement from external backup devices. Anyway you can make use of the DP Live Migration feature as an alternative. This works with HPE StoreOnce, EMC Data Domain and the DP SmartCache.
