First of all I would like to thank Veeam for adding the standalone command line backup option.
Now I would like to kindly ask Veeam to add an optional destination parameter for this standalone backup, e.g.:
- Code: Select all
"C:\Program Files\Veeam\Endpoint Backup\Veeam.EndPoint.Manager.exe" /standalone -destination="D:\Somefolder"
where D: is some USB or lokal drive.
Of course, incrementals, deduplication, etc. are wonderful things, but believe me - people sleep better when they have an additional full standalone backup of their workstation sitting on a lokal or USB drive. Software is made by humans and the more complex it gets, the more problems can occur. This may even apply for Veeam
Additionally, I think that this option can "solve" the other feature request about multiple backup jobs many people would like to have here in the forum.
So please add the destination option and we can finally move away from buggy Symantec. If Veeam Endpoint can do this for our workstations, we would immediately buy Veeam Backup & Replication (although we are a small business running only one VM).
We are really looking forward to see this feature soon
