-====== Ahsay Upgrade Advisory (#26812) – Critical Issue with AhsayOBM v8 Microsoft Hyper-V backup ====== 
- 
-We have recently confirmed a critical issue related to virtual machine backups: 
- 
-  * On Hyper-V 2008 R2/​2012/​2012 R2, due to a bug with the CBT (Change Block Tracking) filter. ​ 
-  * On Hyper-V 2016, due to bug in the handling of RCT (Resilient Change Tracking) data.  
- 
-Because of these issues, the change tracking data is no longer reliable for incremental backups. All Hyper-V virtual machines backups taken using AhsayOBM v8.3.2.11 are no longer restorable.
