FEATURE REQUEST - Ad-hoc backup ti a different folder

Veeam Logoby marius roma » Sat Mar 07, 2015 4:50 pm

I scheduled backup to save files on a usb disk that is usually connected to my PC.
I would like to be able to perform an ad-hoc backup to a different disk, maybe a .usb disk to keep offline, in order to prevent backup files to be corrupted by possible malware or to allow storing the backup in a different place.
VEP is a great solution!

Good idea - Dima, may be this should be a second menu item, similar to the concept we use in Explorers. Current menu item instantly starts backup to the predefined repository, while "Ad hoc backup to..." pops a dialog where you can pick a local folder (or observable share) before the backup starts.

It's exactly what I am looking for...
Can it be a feature in the RTM version?

A very small chance at this point.
