I would like to have the option of creating a subfolder per job in the backup repository because we had an issue where some files were corrupted and we lost the backup of the majority of the VMs. I would like a clearer log of errors. I enabled the schedule for space reclamation on the repository, but after one day I found that the repository was detached and the GUI didn’t give a status of the scheduled task.

We want the backup job to consume fewer resources, as the utilization is very high if we choose the "best compression' option. There was a problem we found regarding the repostory. When we enable the schedule for space reclaimation, once the schedule is trigerred the reclaimation will detach the repository but after 1 week we found that the repository is on detach status so we should detach it manuallu. We didn't know actually the reclaimation is on progress or already finsihed

An improvement would be to include a general data backup solution that is not only for virtual machines. Translate and develop the user interface in other languages like Spanish, Catalan, Basque, etc.

The software is aimed at backing up VM images but it would be nice to have an option to just backup certain files/folders and not the entire disk.

I think it is important to work not only in replicating the virtual machines in Amazon AWS but in other cloud systems. I want to have replicas in the cloud at a more competitive cost.

An improvement would be to give us more control over the email alerts, with different emails going to different addresses based on a set of rules.

I like how it is, and I don't think it needs improvements. In your next release, you might want to include the different types of AWS backups that are included with Nakivo.

I think the product should be improved on the integrations — for example, integration with HPE StoreOnce.
