  1. More Snapshots and longer (non hack) retention times

    We need the ability to store daily snapshots for at least 10 years vs the current 200 snapshot limit. So at least 3650 snapshots need to be supported for this to be a good solution for the enterprise, a lot of us have Legal requirements for long term retention.

    Right now I have DPM set up in the Azure cloud to do this which is kind of silly. I've had to go from on Prem file storage to Azure Files, to a VM for the files to a DPM server to backup with retention. I'm paying for storing the same…

  2. Automatically mount lvm partitions instead of manual intervention

    Currently, in azure backup process, if we want to do file recovery from logical volumes, we have to mount lvm's and then access files.

    Instead of manual intervention, i would vote to see automated mounts of those lvm's like in source backedup vm.

  3. 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.

  7. Azure Backup Service volume full

    The limit size in volume is 2TB, when backup job size is over 2TB will make backup failed.
    Is there any way that can solve limit? Like use cross volume instead the limit size?

  10. Allow selective deletion of snapshots in any and all azure products.

    Backups / snapshots should not be auto deleted on deletion of the files resources. There should be an option to do so, but should not be forced on deletion of the resource. Default should be to retain with the option to delete, or maybe a subcommand that implies the delete . Not simply removal of one forces the other.

  14. Network Throughput

    We usually have our network throughput included in our backup/restore reports. Since Azure backup services has the ability to backup our On-premise server, is it possible to get the Network Throughput as well so we can benchmark our backup or restore operation?

  15. Backup Azure Files

    Please add direct support of the backup of Azure Files or Storage Accounts so we can leverage the better retention, search and restore abilities the product can offer.

    My scenario - I am backing up company data by using Azure File Sync to push our files to a storage account. Then I have a VM in Azure with File Sync on it to copy the files from the storage account so I can back up the data with MABS. I'm doing this because I need the ability to search for files and have the ability to retain 10 years of…

  18. recovery services management interface bug

    While trying to use the management interface for backups and examining a backup vault, none of the tabs along the top ("registered items", "protected items", "configure, etc") respond to click in Win8.1/IE11. The interface stays on the default "dashboard" tab.

    These same items work as expected in Chrome.

    I'm sorry I don't know what other configuration information may be useful to reproduce this problem.

  19. Missing volume prevents schedule changes to be made

    After a disk/volume dies backups fail. I want to be able to change the schedule without having to recreate the missing volume and all of the paths. I moved the files to another drive but cannot modify the schedule.
