How can the backing file location be changed?
How can the backing file location be changed for policies backing up Linux agents?
The backing file is where cached data is stored while the CDP snapshot is being maintained. This is part of the standard copy-on-write (COW) operation. While the snapshot is being kept open during the backup, the backing file stores cached blocks that are needed for snapshot consistency, while allowing the new blocks to be written to disk. This preserves the point-in-time snapshot while allowing new writes to happen to disk as usual.
