Disabling user restores and control

One other feature I think most infrastructure admins would actually like to see in the Endpoint product is the ability to disable user restores!

I know that sounds a bit counterproductive but in an Enterprise environment users can cause more headaches doing the own restores than anything else!

Along those same lines I would love to have the ability to hide the Veeam icon and app from a user altogether and still have backups run on schedule.

Scott,

This would be possible in the next versions if you are using VBR repository as a backup target: on the repository level in VBR you can specify the list of users who can access backup/restore from such repository.

I too would like so see restrictions on user-initiated restores.

Out of curiosity is there any point in re-affirming interest in a particular feature? Will the number of people interested in a potential feature be considered either when determining what features to include or the order/priority assigned to the inclusion of that feature? I just don't want to waste time responding to each feature request if there is no value to it. :)

Well now I feel foolish! Somehow I didn't spot the large and obvious Like buttons next to each post... :)
