Hi. I've installed Veeam Agent on my home PC for testing. I have a USB drive connnected where I store my personal data. With Veeam Agent it appears that its not possible to backup these data, because the GUI allows me only to selected internal systemdrives. Will you make it possible to select USB drives as a backup source sometime soon?

I also agree that it would be very beneficial for us to include USB storage drives in the Agent backup source selection. We have one client that has a system that must remain on BackupAssist due to requiring this functionality.
I'd love to have everything consolidated into Veeam, but they won't sign off on an internal drive addition or a virtualization project, so for the foreseeable future the only way we could get off BackupAssist entirely is to have the Agent let us select USB drives for backup.

This feature has been planned for several years now, and has yet to be implemented. It is still a deal breaker for me in using this product. I have to maintain an entire separate Symantec BackupExec server on a remote server that shares out space on USB direct attached storage devices. I cant back this server up using Veeam.
