Feature Request: add options in file copy job

Veeam Logoby cda » Thu Nov 28, 2013 9:07 am

Hi all,
I love this software but I can't find how to accomplish a simple task.
I need to backup a lot of files (office file sharing) from our nas storage to backup destination (using Veeam B&R) but I can't find how to filter out unnecessary files (eg. ~tmp files/snapshot folder,...).
It would be very useful to create "copy/exclude" lists using also wildcards (*,?) for files/folders.
Can you add these options in file copy job? It will be really appreciated.
Thanks and regards
AV

I'm wondering what product edition you're using. If you're utilizing Cloud edition, then, this task can be easily achieved by creating a backup plan specifying required file masks. Thanks.

The question is what product edition, not version, you're using. So, do you have Veeam Cloud backup installed or not? Thanks.

Vladimir is asking whether you have Cloud Edition of Veeam B&R (it also could be Standard and has Essentials bundle available).

It's not Cloud Edition. It's "plain" Standard (essential) edition. We bought about one years ago.
Thanks and sorry for lack of my description.

[MERGED] Feature Reqest: File Copy job additions

Veeam Logoby b.vanhaastrecht » Mon Feb 24, 2014 11:27 am

Hi,

We would like the folowing features to be added to the File Copy job:
1) We would like to schedule a file copy job after a copy job is finished. Currently this is only posible after a backup or other copy job. The reason for this feature is to copy files to a third stage on the same remote site. The files are transported to the remote site via copy job, and after this copy job we would like to copy the files to our Data Domain. This would eliminate the need for copy jobs to our DataDomain, which for us is not a working solution because of the transforms take to long.
2) Wildcard/filter selection of files. Use filters like *.vib or *.vbk in a specific path.

Regards,
Bastiaan

This should be possible with PS scripting in place. You can just write a simple PS script that executes file copy jobs one by one and schedule it via Windows Scheduler to run on whatever interval you want to.

Thanks.

Yes, with scripting you can achive it but that wont be intergrated in the Veeam GUI, lacking good monitoring, status, reports ext. Also with scripts, errors can be made. An intergrated "Veeam" way to handle chained file copy's after an copy job is desired.

Have you considered using Veeam Cloud Edition in this case? It’s smart enough to copy only new/changed files, and the whole process can be automated via “Backup plan”.

Thanks.

[MERGED] Wildcard in File Copy Job

Veeam Logoby OrgDV » Mon Aug 15, 2016 1:40 pm

I still found no answer.
I'm using Veeam B&R Version 9.0.0.1491.
I'd like to copy a specific file 2 times a month but the filename is always changing. Is there a possibility to use a kind of wildcard (items to copy) in file copy job?
Thx

No, currently you cannot use wildcards in the file copy job.
