Special handling, yes. In an ideal world
, If C:\Windows\fonts\ was among the files to be backed up, Veeam would trigger Windows to zip the entire fonts folder and then Veeam would backup that. Then if you try to copy over font files, individually, it should pause right away and issue an informational warning - perhaps with a link or buttons - something to the effect of
" Raw font files may not work if simply copied over; they must be installed. We can instead copy your zipped font package onto your "desktop" so you can extract then install them using Windows built-in "Install font" function.
[ Proceed to copy individual files ] or [ Copy zipped font archive to extract and install ] "
I am sure fonts is only one case of file type awareness that would be a sweet trick if it could be built into the Veeam products.
