I’m sure there has been a time when you are required to export a workload for a specific point in time from backups you already have. It could be for litigation reasons, an upgrade of an application, and many other countless use cases.
Did you know you can do that with your Veeam backups? Well… You can!
An export can be done from a full, incremental or reverse-incremental restore points, that are located in simple, scale-out, object storage, or cloud repositories.
IMPORTANT: If you are going to do this today, keep this in mind, and make sure to apply the private hot-fix if you are impacted. This hot-fix is only needed for environments where a Scale-Out Backup repository contains Linux-based or ExaGrid-based extents.
In 2017 our family got news we had never wanted to hear.
Stephanie my wife, my life, and the Mother of our two beautiful children, was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. She is and always will be our Rock! Nothing kept her down during the countless doctor appointments, surgery’s, treatments, the stress that comes with this disease, and life.
Even before she was done her own treatments she wanted to find ways to help other people. She put together her own team for Mother’s Day walk 2018, and completed the walk herself after finishing her radiation treatments 1 month before (REALLY)! Words cannot explain how proud I am of this extraordinary person.
She didn’t just put together a team for the walk, she went as far to help the organizers volunteering her time to organize the event. Prime example of what we see from her everyday in our family, putting everybody else first.
She is doing the same thing for 2019, and she needs your help with supporting the Breast Cancer Society work towards a cure, on her upcoming walk! As of two day’s ago is her one year anniversary of her treatments be completed.
The Byrne Family thanks you for anything you can give. It can be via volunteer services, donations, or even join our team and walk with us! Let’s get her past her record of last year which was just over $10,000.00.

It used to be a simple task to connect to a VPN with a couple of mouse clicks, but something that has bothered me for some time is the amount of time it takes in Windows 10 with the new UI. Today I finally just got tired of all the clicking to connect, and then the same to disconnect.
I did a quick Google search and most of them required the use of BAT files, which is ok… But not if you have many different VPNs you may want to connect too.
So during this search I came across rasphone.exe, this is located at “C:\Windows\System32\rasphone.exe”
All you need to do is create a shortcut to this on your desktop
Change the Icon to what you would like
Even go ahead and pin it to your taskbar, or start menu, up to yourself at this point.
But when you launch this shortcut you now get a dialog where you can select any of your configured VPNs to connect.
Once you are connected, if you launch the shortcut again, you can disconnect.
If you do want to pin it to always one connection you can use the shortcut to add some switches.
like this, and it will always launch V – VPN connection.
But for me the simple shortcut does the job for what I need.
Just wanted to share, if this doesn’t work for you more options to exist, and they work just as well.
