Reading Time: 2 minutes The possibility to backup VCSA using VAMI at file level is very powerfull and could be a good “plan-B” in case the backup at image level is not restorable (it happens in case of file/DB corruptions). But, of course, is not perfect and still in latest version there are some issues, like the VAMI backup retention issue. But can also happen that backup fails with no specific errors.
