Do folders outside of VHD get backed up in Veeam

Veeam Logoby RickRosenhagen » Fri Feb 08, 2013 9:48 pm

I have a folder called "software" that holds copies of my setups and other notes for various programs. It does not reside in my file server VHD but rather on my F: drive on my hyper host where I have Hyper-V installed on Windows 2008 R2. Will that folder get backed up with Veeam?

Hi Rick,

No, Veeam B&R backs up only VMs located on your Hyper-V host.

Thanks!

No, replication and backup jobs are both copying virtual machines only, however you may want to use File Copy jobs to save folders from the Hyper-V host.
