Feature request - split backup files

Veeam Logoby keldan » Sun May 08, 2016 7:34 am 1 person likes this post

Hi,

I need to split my backup files in files of less than 2GB.
Other backup softwares give the opportunity to select backup files size (to export en CD, DVD...) : it would be nice if VEB also give this opportunity...

Regards,

Christophe

Hi Christophe,

Thanks for your feature request! Do you copy your backup files to some other location that has a limitation of 2 GBs per each file? If yes, then what's your other destination?

Thanks!

Hi Christophe,

Thanks for the clarification - request makes sense. I wonder, if you are looking for an option to perform a Bare Metal Recovery from OneDrive storage as well or you store some backups locally for this purpose.

Split and ecription from the box would be perfect! :)

Bump.

+1 for need to split backup files. In my case, to upload to OneDrive.

Otherwise, This is the best free backup out there. Better than some of the paid apps I've worked with.

Thank you Will. By the way, are you using the OneDrive for business or regular edition?

Hello and welcome to the community Chris,

Can you elaborate what locations you are referring to? USB drives? Thanks!

Hello,
ahh ok. Sorry. I would like to copy the backup files from one NAS to another, that is 50km away. Between the two locations there is a slow VPN connection thourgh the internet. The copy session breakes sometimes and the job must start at the beginning. Some backups are so big, that it is not possible to copy them in one session. Manual splitting with zip-tools is not an option. This must work automatically.

Thanks a lot.

Thanks for details, noted! Have you considered to use Robocopy as a temporary solution to sync backups between NAS boxes?
