Feature Request - Multiple Jobs

Veeam Logoby jmaissan » Mon Dec 08, 2014 6:50 pm

Is it possible to have multiple jobs scheduled, and show the jobs and details. IE: Daily (user changed files), Weekly (all selected files/User Data), Mthly (full system)

No, and no plans - at least as a part of this specific free product (this is way too advanced for a typical user, and very few users will want such flexibility anyway). Overall, we are trying to follow the KISS principle with the VEB user interface (Keep It Simple Stupid). Thanks!

Feature Request - Multiple Jobs Configurations

Veeam Logoby NitaiS » Thu Dec 11, 2014 1:09 pm

Something useful that I think is a must is the option to create multiple jobs instead of just one.

I can see my self using different backup jobs to backup drives separately or maybe external drives on a different times of the day.

I wish I could set different Jobs at different times, for example, complete machine at night, certain files at noon, etc ..

Guys,
Any real use case why you need it for you home laptop? :D Seriously, either you case about all the files on your home computer, or several files (or OS + files) but why you would want to back it up separately and more over on different schedule?

Hello,

I understand to keep application as simple as possible, but there would be nice to have "run missed backup job" option for scheduled backup. What do you think?

I use two external drives for backup, and I swap them each week taking one offsite with me.

Would it be possible to configure two drives for use in this way?

I realise I could re-configure the job each week, however it would be nice if it just ran when it detected the media change like it can with a single drive.

Yes, it will be possible for removable storage.

I'd like to configure two jobs because I have two different destinations (two NAS) and I wish I could send the backup to both. Maybe one day to NAS A, the other day to NAS B.
I'm backing up my home PC (which is also where I work) and you know, two copies is better than one :)
It already happened to me to lose the whole RAID volume on one of those cheap(ish) home NAS.

Feature Request - Multiple Backup Jobs

Veeam Logoby mazzu » Mon Dec 15, 2014 1:19 pm 1 person likes this post

Hi Team,

First of all let me congratulate you, Veeam Endpoint Backup is awesome, it works great and It's free! I think that It could be useful if Veeam Endpoint Backup lets the user create more than one backup job; for me, for example, is important to have a volume level backup and a file level backup (I use different volumes on my PC).

Regards,

Emilio

Emilio,
Thank you for the kind words! This could be achieved even now - you can have a volume level backup and file level backup by going to the File level backup mode and selecting the entire volume plus several files from other volumes

I would like to back up volume level to USB drive and file level to network drive, would this not require multiple jobs?

Feature Request - Multiple Schedules with different options

Veeam Logoby Craig_karl » Sat Dec 20, 2014 6:13 pm

Hello,

I have been using the beta for the past week on a couple of systems and have been very impressed with it.

I would like to see the ability to have multiple schedules on the same machine.

For example. I may want Volume Backups on my C and D Drive, but only file level backups on E, and have those file level backups every 2 hours vs the nightly volume backup.

For digital image editing I would like to make sure the files that I am working on throughout the day are being backed up and have the ability to go back to a previous version by pulling it back from the NAS appliance that I am backing up to.

Thanks
