Feature Request - backup when dest. windows share available

Veeam Logoby kewnev » Sat Jan 10, 2015 10:34 pm

I have a NAS that I am backing up my PC to via VEB. I don't keep this NAS on all the time as it's unnecessary for me, and also to reduce power costs.

It would be great if VEB had the option to detect if a windows share was available, and back up only if so.

I propose an option under Configure Backup -> Schedule -> At the following events , called "At shared folder availability". This option will periodically detect if the shared folder specified under Configure Backup -> Shared Folder can be accessed.

ie. similar to the existing "At backup storage attach", but for windows shares rather than USB disks.

Thanking you!
