we have a potential customer who use a snapshot backup product to take 15 minutes backup; it is a sector based product which has a filter driver installed on the sevrer; withCommvault file system agent we only do backups once a day; is it possible to use the file agent to do a 15 minute backup; any potential issues. Or should we be using the snapshot backup(VSS; disk sectors) rather than the traditional file system Commvault backups where it reads all the files

Hi @Theseeker 

Thanks for the question.

Instead of traditional daily File System backups, we also have capability to run Block Level Backups with Windows File System agent as you describe.

Please take a look at these documentation links, these are Expert pages, so will require login to view:
