Issues with VEAAM Replication

BarepAssets asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
   I am using veaam replication to replicates vms to a standalone host in our DR site.
On replication I was doing testing and the virtual machine was ok turning on etc in the DR site but there
was a certain level of corruption in some of the folders mostly was ok but some folders i could not even get into.
I deleted down the virtual machine in the DR site and started a new veaam job replicating using the vss option as
from searching around the net this appears to be good way of avoiding corruption. Replication started yesterday it is
a 1.5 terrabyte machine it is in a data store of 1.82 terrabyte. When i came in this morning the virtual machine in production
would not switch on as the data store was out of space. I managed to get the virtual machine on by deleting a *.vbk ( i backed up to my local pc first)
which i know  is veaam related file but this was only 256 mb in size. So at the moment i have a virtual machine with should be 1.5 tb and i only have 223mb
free in a datastore 1.82. What files are veaam files that i can delete??
