Backup only a specific onedrive folder

Post by HeineA » Jul 31, 2019 7:55 am

Hi,
Our Veeam currently takes backup of all company users onedrives, however, alot of private elements, like pictures, is also being backupped. Is it possible to only take backup of specific folder(s) on the users onedrives?
For example, only take backup of a folder on all onedrives called "Work" and all folders + files in the Work folder.
With this we can tell people that all private files should be located in other folders then the Work folder.

We currently use Veeam backup for Microsoft office 365 v3.

Hi @HeineA! Welcome to the Community

You can exclude specific OneDrive folders with PowerShell using the ExcludedOneDriveFolders parameter.

And to add to Polina's answer... In your case it might be better to work with the SelectedOneDriveFolders parameter ;-)

Hi Polina and Mike,
Thanks for the response. Just to clarify, with the SelectedOneDriveFolders parameter I can choose to only backup a specific folder, like a folder named "Work", on all user onedrives in the company? :-)

Yep, that's correct.

Note though that the selected folders will be backed up only if they're root folders. To back up any subfolders with the same name, you need to explicitly add them.

For example, there's a OneDrive with the following structure inside:
* Folder A -> Folder B -> Folder C
* Folder B

To back up all folders "B", you need to specify both "Folder B" (for the "B" root folder) and “Folder A\Folder B” - for "B" subfolder.
