What is the sv2i file that is created with the backup?

Solution

The system index file (.sv2i) is created when you perform a backup operation that has multiple drives or a recovery point set (base and incremental backups). A system index file reduces the amount of time that is needed to restore the drives. When a recovery point is created, a system index file is saved with it. The system index file contains a list of the most recent recovery points, which includes the original drive location of each recovery point.
