Hyper-V Virtual Machine Backup Utility Update v4.1

Download it from the Microsoft TechNet Gallery the PowerShell Gallery and GitHub.

Today I’ve released an update to my Hyper-V Backup Utility PowerShell script. Version 4.1 adds zip file creation and the ability to keep a history of Virtual Machine backups. These new features are included along with the ability to backup Virtual Machines using the built-in Hyper-V export function, meaning that the VMs do not need to be shutdown. However if the Hyper-V host lacks the permissions necessary to perform the export, it can be configured to shutdown the Virtual Machines and backup through a file-based copy operation.

Whether you are running Hyper-V on a Windows 10 desktop or a Windows Server 2016 cluster, this utility can be used to backup your virtual machines.

My original post with the full documentation is available here.
