CloudBerry to Amazon for VM

Last Modified: 2017-01-28
What is the correct way to make an initial seed backup of a server to Amazon in preparation for a Disaster Recovery scenario where we would turn that backup into a VM accessible via RDP?

We'll make the initial backup to an external drive and send that drive to Amazon, then make very frequent online backups (i.e.every 30 minutes) so that the backup at Amazon stays up-to-date... then if/when needed, turn that backup into a VM.

Just not exactly sure of the options to choose using the CloudBerry Online Backup wizard...
