Hi,
Creating a backp job I have 2 types to choose between: "Virtual Machines" or "Hosts and Clusters". Each VM is listed 2 times, once below "Virtual Machines" and once below "Hosts and Clusters" > "Hyper-V Hostname". What is exactly the difference between these to types?

Regards

Hi Ueli,

The "Virtual Machines" is just a global common group of all VMs on all hosts/clusters managed by Acronis Backup. The "Hosts and Clusters" view simply allows you filtering on per-host/cluster basis. There is no difference between these 2 ways - it doesn't matter where you select the VMs when configuring backup plan.

Thank you.
