XSIBackup-Pro and XSIBackup-DC combination

Hi...
My goal is to do local backups the way XSIBackup-PRO did. In other words, get a dated folder with the VMs folders inside and ready to attach and turn on. Then, using XSIBackup-DC make a remote copy of this folder obtained with XSIBackup-PRO to a remote deduplicated repository. However, when doing the latter, XSIBackup-DC detects that the contents of the folder is a VM, tries to shut it down and take a snapshot and everything completes.
I don't know if this is the best way to do it but my goal is clear. Ready-to-use local backups that can be rotated according to the available space as was done with XSIBackup-PRO and remote backups in a deduplicated repository to take advantage of this technology to speed up copying over the internet (since duplicate blocks are not transferred).

You can easily achieve the same with DC.
We have just covered that in detail in v. 1.5.0.11 and in our post:
