Great tool, works very well. Support is super fast in response (2hours) and this on a FREE product!!
It works great on ESXi 6.0.
It works very well and the reactivity of the author seems to be great. A must have !
This is a good concept and program Definitely only for those that understand the command line, it has a way to go for development, but it's exactly what we need to backup ESX with. Use with an eSata attached disk for external backup - excellent !
Very nice script
