[Feature Request] Using %USERPROFILE% and submaps

Post by Dirkdm » Nov 07, 2018 10:21 am

At this moment, in the standalone client, I don't see a solution to select the profile from the current user. I want to install/configure on every laptop in the company the Veeam Agent for Windows that has the same selection of submaps in the default userprofile. I would export the configuration and use that xml file as input to import it on all the other laptops.
Modifying the XML-file with the %USERPROFILE%-variable doesn't work when I try to import the file.


Kind Regards,

Dirk

Hello Dirk.

Have you tried to use predefined Personal Folder option in the File level backup mode? Thanks!

Hi Dima,

there is a "Personal Files" but that selects default all the profiles on the computer, including default, Public etc..., and all the submaps. I only want the profile of the user that is logged on and a few submaps of it.

Dirk,

Understood, thank you. What subfolders from a user profile would you like to be included (Documents, Photos, Contacts)? Cheers!
