vm backup

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a couple of vm on hyper-v. I was wondering if there was a way to set up sort sort of automatic backup of each vm like once a week? One of my vm virtual hd was corrupted or something... I really didn't care because it was a simple apache vm for my web design projects. I didn't lost anything so biggrin.gif

Now before i start putting some stuff on that vm , i want to make sure this won't happen again.
I know we can do snapshot of a vm ( lol forgot to do this sad-smiley-002.gif ), but is there like a way to make them automatic?

I used to only play with vm to test out future os, so i don't really know all the setting that could be inside hyper-v.

You could either back up the vhdx files with task scheduler or there are a lot of powershell scripts that will use the export feature of hyperv to backup the vms
