Backup to alternating usb passport drives

Veeam Logoby Rlacker » Wed Feb 15, 2017 2:27 pm

I am currently backing up each day to a usb passport drive. I would like to add another usb passport drive and alternate the drives so I can bring one home each night. This would be useful if we had a situation where we lost everything, at least I would have something. I am a novice but do have a computer company that is not sure if this can be done. Any help would be appreciated.

I do know Veeam Endpoint supports Rotated Drives, https://helpcenter.veeam.com/endpoint/1 ... rives.html
Have you looked into this option to see if it will work for you?

Ian is correct.

The principle remains the same for VAW. The article should help you as the principle is the same

Cheers

By the way, rotated drives works perfectly in conjunction with 'When backup target is connected' event and 'Eject removable storage once backup is completed' option.

Worth checking - Specify Backup Schedule :wink:
