Licensing for the Windows backup is specific to an MS-Windows policy and does not support the Windows clients or servers that are backed up using any virtualization policy, such as VMware and HyperV.
Using the MS-Windows policy, the Windows data is backed up based on the pathname or directive that is defined in the policy. The definition of protected data is the size of the directives and pathnames for the policy.
NetBackup posts all data in this directive. Run the file system commands, calculate size of each drive, and compare the size that is reported in the capacity licensing report. The files that are mentioned in the exclude list are not used to calculate protected data.
Only System State data is backed up. NetBackup creates the xml files of backup data under
logs\BEDSfolder and lists the files that are backed up and excluded from backup. System state backup is needed for the operating systems that do not support Shadow Copy.
System State data is backed up. NetBackup creates the xml files of backup data under

Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) is a lightweight directory service that runs as a user service. This directive is used to back up ADAM data on computers where it is installed.
Multiple data streams are backed up.
Backs up only the data on the file system drive. NetBackup does not back up System State data and excludes file data.
Backs up the files and folders that are specified in the backup selection. Run the file system command and compare the size that is reported in the capacity licensing report.
Snapshot-based backups are supported on all the versions of Windows servers and clients with various features of NetBackup such as multistreaming, Accelerator, compression, and so on.
Administrators can run commands to verify the size that the accurate licensing method reports. The following commands are available by default on Windows.
Lists the files on the system folders and their sizes.
- Get-ChildItem C:\test1 | Measure-Object -property length -sum
PowerShell command to get folder size.
Users can also view size information from Windows Explorer. Right-click the drive, file, or folder, and then click.
