Any way to exclude filetypes, such as .one?

Post by Amarokada »

I realise the Veeam interface doesn't yet allow filetype exclusions from O365 backups. Is there a hidden way this could be done, such as a powershell command?

We have 1 customer that would like all .one files excluded from their backups.

Thank you
Rob

Hi Rob,

No, that's not possible.
There's a 'hidden' way (via PowerShell) to exclude specific OneDrive folders, but not file types.

Thanks!

Ah that's a shame. Perhaps it could be added as a feature request in a future version?

Sure, your request is noted )

Do you by chance know the particular reason why your customer doesn't want to protect OneNote data?

It seems that the way users have been moving .one files around themselves, Veeam O365 backup will mistake .one files as unreachable websites (examples below with personal details changed to xxxxx)

Rob,

Did you contact Veeam support on this issue? The error above looks very similar to one of the known (and resolved) problems with backing up OneNote files in the Preservation Hold library, and the fix should be available via support.

Thanks!

Thank you, I do believe a general list of issues was communicated to support, but I'll ask to raise a specific ticket on this issue.

Chris,

The one I'm thinking of is included to this patch, but it's up to support to suggest the right solution.

Thanks!
