I'm quite sure that VEB has been more of a success than Veeam expected hence the flood of feature requests.
Personally even if this became a chargeable product most businesses will pay for this product.
The integration with backup repository is the killer feature.
I've restored a test system from a laptop onto a desktop and different laptop and it worked you know in that weird emergency situation moment
Feature request backing up attached storage.
My example 20 road warriors with anywhere from 2TB to 6TB data they need on the road.
These guys manually do use Beyond Compare to sync data to local central servers, then DFS moves this data to other servers globally.
USB Drives they use have fixed drive letters so no worrying about automatic drive letter assignment. (although that's not a huge deal)
What I want to see is the ability to backup these drives when staff are in office.
I've used other backup solutions to tackle this and although they work, it not the kind of integration that VEB could offer.
I'm sure there are a lot of other people out there with this same request, if there are please reply to this thread to gain support for this feature in version 2.x ?
