OST files are ignored. You will see them in the file-level explorer (at least I believe so...) but they are zero. If you do a BMR, you will need to resynchronize the OST but that is not a real problem. By default we ignore a lot of temporary files such as hibernation, page file, temporary files and so on... But of course, feel free to give us your list of preferences, we are always willing to look at that to save more space

Also you can ignore specific files when configuring "Select Folders to Back Up" wizard > http://helpcenter.veeam.com/endpoint/10 ... ub=exclude
