We are looking into this functionality. We are not yet sure when we can deliver to be honest but it is on our radar. The problem with Public folders is that they should have died some time ago (at least Microsoft would have wanted that :-)) and that the technology behind it differs from mailbox and the way you need to back it up.. But we are investigating and I hope that I can bring positive news soon. But for now, it is still not known.

For the release date. I am hoping to deliver the beta (as said at VeeamON) before end of this month

I have just installed 1.5 beta but don't see the option to backup Public Folders.

I see the PF mailboxes 1 - x but not the actual top level yellow folders as I would expect.

Do these public Folders have to be mail enabled before they are seen?

Can anyone advise please?

You can select Public Folders in the mailboxes list at the Select Mailboxes step of the wizard.

Hi Foggy,

Thanks for the response.

In the Mailboxes list wizard, I only see the user mailboxes.

I can confirm that I am running 1.5.0.792

And what is the Exchange version? Public folders are supported for versions starting Exchange 2013 and for Exchange Online (O365).

It's Exchange Online (O365).

I have used a Global Admin admin account for permissions and on setup, passed with all green ticks at setup.

I can see all the user mailboxes as well as the Public Folder mailboxes but not the Public Folders.

Ok, if you see Public Folders mailboxes, then this is expected. Somehow I missed this from your initial post, sorry. Public Folders themselves will be visible when you open the backup in Veeam Explorer for Exchange.
