I have a quick question regarding enabling backup file encryption. I would like to start using this option, but not clear on how it is being used once it is enabled.
It appears that Veeam B&R continues to use the selected encryption password (in my case loss protection is disabled) during backups and restores.
If someone were to gain access to the NAS that I am backing up to and attempted to restore a VM, they would need to have the password to restore the VM or guest files correct?
If I do a test file level restore from an encrypted VM, I am not prompted to enter a password during the restore process.
Thank you in advance
