Backup agent for Microsoft Windows servers and workstations (formerly Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE)

Some suggestions

Nice solution so far. Better than some of the currently available commercial solutions.

A few things I would like to see.

Have an option to password protect the endpoint client and be able to create users with limited permissions like a restore only user. I don't want end users getting in and messing with the settings or restoring files they shouldn't be.

We use endpoint with enterprise B&R server so it would be nice to be able to seed load backup data for offsite replication or be able to move backup sets to different storage. Currently you cannot do this, it ignores the copied data and just creates a new backup set.

The ability to have multiple jobs with different volumes specified to backup. I know you can run multiple jobs using the command line, but you can't specify which volumes to backup.

As some have mentioned before, I think endpoint should be developed into a commercial solution with similar features as backup jobs for virtual machines. I would be willing to pay for this rather than have to maintain two backup solutions.

Thanks

Hello mjs,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts - its highly appreciated.

Possible with latest 1.5 version of VEB and VBR 9.0 Update 1. Check this thread.

That works for just moving the endpoint backup jobs around, but does not work for endpoint backup copy jobs. Normally you would just map the job using the "Map backup" option. This option doesn't exist for endpoint backup copy jobs.

True. Backup mapping for backup copy jobs is not supported in the existing version.

Richard,

To clarify, are you talking about mapping or password protection of VEB client? Thanks.

Any chance the option to map endpoint backup jobs will be included in v10?
