  2. backup

    I tested Azure a year ago and was very disappointed because your tutorials were never up-to-date and the portal was slow.

    So I return after a year and altough the portal is a little bit quicker, the tutorials are still laughable and the instructions never line up with what I see in the portal.

    I've spent an hour trying to find the Azure Online Backup feature, it should be in "Recovery Services" but of course there's no such thing in the portal I see at least. And this Windows Azure Online Backup Agent that you're talking about is nowhere to…

  5. Better error messages in recovery services

    I'm getting error messages like:

    Please retry the operation in a few minutes. If the problem persists, contact Microsoft Support.

    Trying to create a support ticket isn't possible because you need to pay for support, even for internal errors... An already paying customer shouldn't need to pay for support when Microsoft didn't implement correct and meaningful error messages, especially not when it says 'internal' error...

    Something like this shouldn't be on UserVoice it shouldn't be needed to vote on, it's standard...

  6. Use correct English

    "Retain Backup Till" is slang. The words should be "Retain Backup Until".

  7. Doubts about instances in the Azure Backup

    Hello! I'm with a doubt regarding Microsoft Backup Azure.
    What would be a protected instance? Is it really what Backup items?
    If we have 19 Backup items then we are paying the value 19 instances?
    It follows attachment print as an example, the language of the console is in Portuguese-BR.

  8. Update The Azure Storage Valut Dashboard Page quick glance to show the download of the tools for client backups

    Now that Azure backup supports backing up of clients, I'd like to see the Storage Vault's Dashboard page updated to show the download of the agent for clients. The dashboard page currently shows just downloading tools for the client. See the attached file az1.png)s to see a screen shot of the page I am talking about.

  10. Windows Server backup change tracking method?

    Can the documentation include information about what change tracking method is used to "Back up a Windows Server or client to Azure using the Resource Manager deployment model". For file backup does this use change block tracking or archive bit as the determination of which files/blocks have changed and need to be transferred to the Recovery Service Vault.

  12. Please update doc with February 2018 changes

    Please update the screen shot for the SQL server to have the newest screens. Clients have mentioned the SQL Server install screen is outdated and I confirmed it.

    Also, please mention that .NET 3.5 is a pre-requisite.

  13. How does the instance work?

    I wonder what an instance would be.

    In case, if I back up a file server, I'll need an instance. If I back up another file server, will I need another instance or use it?

    If I subsequently back up a SQL or VM, will I need another instance?

    Awaiting.

  14. Bug: Typo on Backup Vault configuration page

    There is a typo on the Backup Vault -> Configure page for the storage replication's tool-tip, where it says: "The Geo-Redundant option maintains 3 copies of your data locally and 3 copties in a secondary storage region." As you can see the copies is misspelled the second time as "copties".
