In each full backup, valid data for the selected data source is backed up into the specified media completely with a point in time generated. Currently, only backup to OFS media and object storage media is supported.

§    What is valid data?
The data blocks already used by VMs on the virtual disk.
For example, the disk capacity of the VM to be backed up is displayed as 40 GiB, but the actual size is only 16 GiB. During backup, only 16 GiB of valid data is backed up to the media.
