I'm a bit new to VMware so kindly forgive me. I'm using VMware Data Recovery to backup VM on a SAN platform connected to ESXi4.0. I have noticed that the backups run successfully but excludes all Virtual disks checked as independent.
this is particularly evident when i go to Restore under VMware Data Recovery. I see that i can only restore vmdk files that were not checked as independent.
here are my questions
1. how do i get those independent disks backed up in VMware Data Recovery
2. in case i have to restore the backed up VMs, am i going to get a VM minus those disks marked as independent?
