Making a 2nd copy of Veeam Backups

Veeam Logoby unleasher » Wed Feb 11, 2015 12:22 am

Hello,

So I am in a Hyper-V environment and I have all of my backups stored on one drive. I was thinking about making a 2nd copy of the backups a some regular interval to a network drive. What is the best way to do this?

Thank you!

Hey,
In my environment, i'm doing backup on a fix drive first then use backup copy file that do incremental copy as soon as it detect a new restore point into the original backup file. It does a great job for our daily offsite disks. Of course after a week, the copy is a little longer, but i can have 2-3 "Daily" restore point on a single disk.

I hope that will help you a little.

The recommend approach is the usage of backup copy job. If you're going to rotate underlying drives, don't forget to enable this option in the settings of repository. Thanks.
