Windows Variables in Veeam Agent for Windows

Veeam Logoby Vitaly » Tue May 30, 2017 4:48 pm

Just start playing with agent and configuration.

Found that Agent does not support windows variables (or at least that one, i'm interested on).
In our environment the users have a base workstation, as well they are moving across of departments.
It creates multiple User Profile's folder on each computer, but that folders not needs to be backed up.
Only the current user profile needs to be backed up.

We currently using Symantec DLO and we can set to backup only %CURRENTUSERPROFILE%\.
This functionality I cannot find in Veeam agent, but it will be great to have that option.
So we can reduce the backup size, that needs to be stored.

Hi Vitaly

First: Welcome to the forums!

Second: Thanks for the feature request. Your voice is heard and it will be taken into consideration!

But, can I ask what OS you are using? Because %currentuserprofile% does not exist on my machine as a variable. Can you also do SET in a command prompt and see if that variable is listed?
