NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows exporting backups to standard formats compatible with various platforms. The following formats are supported:
- VMDK for disk(s) of VMware virtual machine(s)
- VHD for disk(s) of Hyper-V virtual machine(s)
- VHDX for disk(s) of Hyper-V virtual machine(s)
To export your backup for subsequent recovery on the same or different platform, the Backup Export Wizard is available in NAKIVO Backup & Replication.
Please refer to the System Requirements page for supported cross-platform recovery scenarios.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication does not run VM preparation when exporting the backups into a specific format.
If you plan to import the VM into a different platform and VM preparation is required, please make sure to prepare your VM in advance.
