File Copy Job: Backup every EXCEPT...

Post by riahc3 » Jul 06, 2018 8:53 am

Im having a strange issue with Veeam Backup & Replication

I want to do a File Copy Job just to make some backups of some data files. The thing is Id like to copy inside a folder several folders but exclude others.

Right now I manually have to select

C:/Folder 1
C:/Folder 1/textfile.txt
C:/Folder 1/Folder 1
C:/Folder 1/Folder 3
C:/Folder 2/Folder 2
C:/Folder 2/Folder 3
C:/Folder 3
C:/Folder 4/Folder 9
C:/Folder 4/Folder 8

I dont understand why I cant just select, for example, C:/Folder 1 and it selects all the folders/files inside and I just have to automatically unselect
C:/Folder 1/Folder 2 which I DONT want included in the backup

Hi,

VBR's major function is to perform VM image backup/restore and application processing, so advanced features for file-level backup functionality were offloaded to other product such as Agents.

Thank you

Yes, that is the Agent I was referring to, sorry for not giving you the link right away.

Thanks
