Veeam full backup to Onedrive

Veeam Logoby BTobbe » Tue Jun 21, 2016 10:59 am

Hey,

So I was looking in to veeam endpoint protection backup "entire computer".
I have mapped my Onedrive as a Z:\ which is viewable in explorer etc like usual. But when I go in to veeam and choose either local storage or shared folders I am unable to find Z: and unable to specify it manually.

Is there anyone who know how to do this if it's even possible? As if I just try to use my regular one drive folder I can't back it to that disk as it's on my system disk.

Endpoint can only backup to physically connected disks I presume.

Your OneDrive is not physically connected...

I believe you are correct. OneDrive wouldn't be any one of the listed supported targets.

Yes, the target cannot be a mapped drive either.

Hi,

You can use a shared folder destination in conjunction with a path like \\MyLaptop\C$\Users\Dima P\OneDrive but keep in mind the OneDrive file size limitation of 10GBs.

Actually, you can use said folder via Local storage destination type too (except entire pc backup mode) :wink:

Ability to backup copy to OneDrive would be very useful indeed, since E3 users have 5TB of it available. The client would just need a little bit of file chunking logic and WebDav support.
