Free Windows workstation backup from Veeam

Right now I am looking into many different backup solutions to see how they can be best integrated.. Some might already have an idea why ..

Today I looked into the Veeam backup client for Windows. For integration on command-line this doesn't look like a good match so far.
But the same Veeam client used on servers does not only runs against their server, but also stand-alone for example with USB drives.
And the best is, that it is free!  Have a look -->
I was looking for a new local backup solution for my notebook for a while..  Acronis backup became almost unusable in their last releases.

So I used local SSD attached to my notebook and took a full backup.
Afterwards I took another delta backup, which was done in just 5 min.

The backup is de-duplicated and compressed and freaking fast!  It took 53 minutes for the whole notebook with a quite full 1 TB disk.
This is the best solution for Windows I am aware of. And it is free using enterprise backup software from one of the leading companies!

See pictures from my first run and the incremental run.

This is really cool! And this might be also a good solution for friends & family :-)
