  2. Migrate data from GRS to LRS

    I have an existing vault that uses GRS storage. I want to make use of the new LRS storage available. However this LRS choice is available only to new vaults created.

    I don't want to lose the data that has already been backed up to Azure. Can I migrate my data and vault from GRS storage to LRS storage?

  3. Azure Backup ReFS Support

    Our Server 2012 R2 Essentials has all of our mission critical data stored on a set of HDDs formatted with ReFS, as would seem good practise for this sort of data.
    Today I started a trial of Azure Backup to see if it would work as a Cloud backup solution for our server.... to no avail as I have used ReFS on the drive I want to protect.

    If it is…

  4. Seeding a large Azure Backup Server restore using export service

    We can seed initial backup to Azure backup Vault using the import service but we cannot seed a large restore using the Export service. Restoring a large volume of data could take several days or even weeks!
