  1. Functions for checking the progress status ( ** % etc.) of Azure Backup from Azure Portal

    We can check from Azure Portal whether Azure Backup is completed.
    However, we cannot see how far it is going at this time.

    Our customers want us to implement visualization of the percentage currently being achieved by Azure Portal.

  3. Change Resource Group for restorePointCollections

    "Microsoft.Compute/restorePointCollections are store in a special ressource group named : AzureBackup_<Region>_<number>.

    The good idea could be to be able to configure an other RG for each Recovery Service Vault to store restorePointCollections.

  4. How to merge multiple PST files into Single PST file - Easily and Accurately

    I would like to suggest the best third-party software to merge PST files which is Shoviv PST Merge Software. The software is integrated with the intelligent scanning algorithms that allow you to merge an unlimited number of PST files into a single PST file in a short period. This utility merges various MS outlook contacts, outlook emails, and outlook calendars into one PST file with great ease. Different options are there to combine two or more than two PST files like merge, join and merge contacts folder, and software also preserve the meta properties of emails. It supports all MS…

  6. move vm from recovery services vault to new vault

    I need a way to move a VM from one recovery services vault to another. For example, I want to stop backing up a VM in recovery services vault A, and start backing up the VM in recovery services vault B. At the moment, I can stop backing up the VM, but cannot choose to back it up in the other vault.

  7. Recovery Services Vault integration with Azure Key Vault

    It would be very useful to be able to manage Certificates through Azure Key Vault.
    AKV may become the comprehensive key/certificate vault, so that no risks of losing cypher certificates will occur.

  10. Modify MARS agent back job properties directly from Azure portal.

    I'd be great to modify backup job details direclty from Azure Portal. Imagine having a server that is backing up D: volume. In order to change the volume from D: to C: I have to login locally to the server and do the change. Having a possibility of this change from Azure Portal would speed up the change.

  11. Exclusions based on minimatch patterns

    I want to be able to exclude certain folders from backups by default and I want to be able to use wildcards to do it. Right now this is a nightmarish thing to do and the documentation is very scarce.

    Examples:

    c:\users\*\sources\repos\**\.git\
    c:\users\*\sources\**\node_modules\
    c:\users\*\sources\**\obj\
    c:\users\*\sources\**\packages\
    c:\users\*\sources\**\.vs\
    c:\users\*\sources\workspaces\**\tf$\

    c:\users\*\Dropbox*\
    c:\users\*\OneDrive*\
    c:\users\*\Google Drive*\

    Having to manually configure these or to have scripts that try to continuously update the backup schedules on machines is madness.

  12. to add the option to schedule different backup jobs on the same Azure backup agent.

    Currently Azure backup can only schedule one backup job on an on-premises server. In Situation where end users need different backup schedules for different files and folders, there is no option, please look into it and add the option.

  13. SCOM Management Pack for Microsoft Azure Backup Server

    As far as I can tell there is no way to monitor Microsoft Azure Backup Server from SCOM, as there is no "Central Console" that can be installed on the SCOM management server

  14. Allow ability to search an index of backups

    Could you please add the ability to search for a filename through all backups vs having to manually mount each backup and determine if the file is there? Having an index that shows when the last backup of a particular file would be incredidibly helpful.

    Use case: User deletes a file at the beginning of the month. During end of month reporting, they try to find the file and notice it is gone. End user calls backup admin, backup admin pulls up a UX to be able to search for the filename and then is presented a list of dates…

  15. move or target backups to a new vault without having to delete all recovery points

    We should have the ability to move backup recovery points between vaults or at least target them to a new vault without having to delete all existing recovery points. Right now if we want future backups to go to a new vault (many reasons, for example Power BI reporting) we have to delete all existing recovery point history for that VM, go for a period of time with no backups, and then set it up again. We should be able to retain existing recovery points while using a new vault and building up history.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. Make It Easier to Add Exclusions

    Suppose I was backing up drives C:, D:, E: and F: and I wanted to add exclusions for file types *.flv, *.mov, *.mp3, *.pst* and *.tmp. In the job configuration I have to manually add:
    C: - *.flv
    C: - *.mov
    C: - *.mp3
    C: - *.pst
    C: - *.tmp
    D: - *.flv
    D: - *.mov
    D: - *.mp3
    D: - *.pst
    D: - *.tmp
    E: - *.flv
    etc. etc.
    F: - *.tmp

    Please add the option for global excludes across all drives!

  20. 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).
