Copy only differences in VHDX files?

Post by elliottmarter »

I have a Hyper-V VM I am trying to run a backup of to a USB 3.0 external disk.

Can SBP only copy the differences?

What I have done so far:
1. Ran a full backup (which copied the entire 40GB VHDX).
2. Ran it again immediately after, this completed immediately.
3. I then started the VM and created a TEST.txt on the desktop.
4. When I ran the profile again it began copying the entire 40GB file again.

How can I make SBP only copy the differences in the VHDX file? is it even possible?
