PowerShell Script for Snapshot Backup of Hyper-V >>>Download Off-line <<<
How are you backing up your Hyper-V VMs? Agent backups with a legacy backup software like NetBackup. This is good for file by file backups but is a real pain if you need to do a full system with system state restore. Too often system admins get hung up trying to do a full system restore from a legacy backup and loose the system state in the process.
I found a PowerShell script that was written to do SnapShots of Hyper-V VMs and export them somewhere where you can do a regular backup of the VM folder and files, offline. Tore Lervik who blogs at Mindre.net is the author of the script. After reading the many comments Tore has received on his script, it looks like the Hyper-V VM Backup Script is a success, good going Tore!
