  1. Need detailed report on file / folder size backed up

    It is nice to be able to run Get-OBJob -previous 1 and see a report of the total size of data backed up per resource (C drive, D Drive, etc), but I am looking for a report that shows the total size of each file/folder backed up in that specific resource set.

    I need to be able to quickly determine where my larger sized backed up files/folders are.

    As it stands now i can only see this data at the drive level. I need this more granular.

    • Post somewhere the actual IP range used by Azure Backup so we won't have to whitelist half the world

      It's a real pain to whitelist 400+ IP ranges, that change in time...
      This needs to change, because nobody would want to whitelist half the world if the machine is not a web server.

        • Include status of backup consistency for azure backups

          From the portal.azure.com web interface we can see the type of consistency for a backup. We would like to have visibility into this information through the PowerBI reports and powershell commands.

            • Ability to Enable Permenant Retention for "Legal Hold"

              Need a dedicated button or policy to manage backups during "Legal Hold". This should change the retention policy to retain the restore points indefinitely similar to option in O365.

              • Add mailing option if backup is successful.

                Add mailing option if backup is successful.
                In the "Alerts and Events" tab -> "Backup Alerts" -> "Configure Notifications" only 3 options appear (Critical, Warning, Information).
                You could add a new option that was "Success" for submission if successful.
                Thanks for reading our suggestion.

                • Setup quota's and quota related alerts for Azure backup

                  Hi,

                  I think it would be great if we can manage storage quotas's or at least get alerts once a 100GB milestone is closing in .

                  At this moment a recovery vault just grows uncontrollably, and it is really hard to keep track of the costs.

                  Kind regards,

                  Daniël Veldman

                  • Backup Azure VMs with disks larger than 1023GB

                    Currently we're unable to backup Azure VMs that have disks attached that are larger than 1023GB. Now that 4095GB disks can be setup in Azure it really is a show stopper to use larger disk sizes if they can't then be backed up.

                    As larger disk sizes become available Azure Backup should be updated to support these.

                            • Inconsistent experience when a user selects the backup goal

                              Current Azure backup configuration doesn't show an option to take files and folder & system state backup when a user selects the backup goal (workload running in) Azure. if user changes workload running option to on-premises, he can then see more options. which basically creates a confusion and some customers feel that they cant take files,folder and system state backup for Azure VM. please improve this experience and make it consistent when user selects either Azure or On-Premises

                              • Add Azure Backup Tray icon to allow pausing, throttling, progress indication, ...

                                Simple tray icon indicating current backup status/progress, allowing pausing of the backup, switching throttling profiles, etc. would be "nice" (at least a step towards current state of competitive cloud backup solutions).

                                • Backup a DR replicated powered-off vm for long term archival

                                  Allow backing up of a powered off replicated VM. The situation is such that we replicate our VMs to Azure for DR and leave them powered off. We would like to then backup the replicated copies of those vms directly from Azure to Azure backup so as to reduce bandwidth.

                                  • Use TAGS for selecting Backup schedule/policy

                                    Today, I like to use TAGS to identify who owns a VM, where charges should go, who to contact for support, etc. I'd like to be able to use a tag to determine AUTOMATICALLY what backup schedule/policy to use. Veeam has an option to do that based on vSphere tags. I'd like to propose that as an enhancement if it's not already in the works. Thanks.

                                      • Support backup of files/folders from Bitlocker-protected volumes

                                        Currently, backup of files/folders from Bitlocker-protected volumes is not supported (even if the agent allows picking those folders for backup and it probably works?).
                                        Please add official support for backing up files/foldes from Bitlocker-protected volues.

                                        • Azure backup client v9083 not working with new Onedrive client on W10 Slowring 16251

                                          This agent version in combination with an update of my Onedrive client on W10 slowring (build 16251), does not backup any locally stored Onedrive files to Azure anymore.
                                          The MAB mmc returns 'Data failure 0x80990ab7' and files are no longer in the backup. Any backup made with older Onedrive clients are okay, but I'm lacking the newest files.

                                          You might ask why I backup Onedrive files in Azure, as they are already in the MSFT cloud. But this is the consumer version of Onedrive, so no guarantees from MSFT incase of failure. :-)

                                          Please feel free to follow-up on this.
