  • Back up Hyper-V VMs “live” – no need to save, suspend, or shut down
  • ReverseDelta ™ technology – the most recent version of files are saved in their entirety for rapid restores. Older versions of files are saved only in differential block-level chunks. This allows for both rapid restoring and reduced space requirements on backup media.
  • Restore a Hyper-V VM in only five clicks
  • Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS)-aware applications in virtual machines, such as Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SQL Server, will commit their databases.

Free edition limitations

  • Only two virtual machines can be backed up
  • Only stores backups for the past four weeks
