Make a single disk backup


Oct 27, 2019

I'm new to Proxmox and I'm trying to make a backup of a virtual machine I've just configured. However I am only interested in the disk in which the operating system is installed since the other two contain data that does not interest me, therefore: is there a way to disable backup in the other two disks? thanks a lot
UI->Vm Hardware Tab-> edit the disk -> Advanced options -> no backup
Thank you very much. I had not seen the check mark for the advanced settings. Have a nice day, thanks.
