Hello Jason and welcome to the community! Could you describe the use case behind the feature request? For now you can use VBR backup copy and replication jobs to copy VM data to the cloud or Veeam Endpoint to copy files of physical machines. Thanks for the feedback!

The files that they would like to go to the cloud are mailbox items(pst files) as well as several documents off his exchange VM. I'll mention to him to consider using backuyp copy to cloud but is there a way to be more efficient in terms of space used on the cloud?

Jason has been assisting in this issue. The problem I am having is providing effective Cloud Connect services to clients.
I run 9.5 with a Cloud Connect License and I currently have a client that wishes to backup nearly 4TB worth of data to a cloud repository that we host for them. The issue is that they want it to happen on a regular basis and to replace any files that have been changed since the original file copy. However there is a limitation on the cloud connect/file copy function that doesn't allow for scheduled file copy jobs, which makes the process of copying files rather time consuming instead of having it happen on a scheduled time and date automatically. The data is hosted on a physical server, dedicated as just a file server for document storage.
I really need this feature available in Veeam to allow customers to setup scheduled file copy jobs, external to the backup jobs for the remainder of their environment.

Do those 4TB of data reside on physical or virtual machine? If it`s on VM you may follow Eugene`s advice and copy only needed files with the backup / backup copy jobs. It will also leverage CBT and compression what file copy job is missing. Thanks!

Unfortunately it resides on a physical server as stated. The data is stored a Windows 2012 R2 Server which is used only for data storage. There is no VMs on this standalone server. I have the VMs already backing up and running correctly through Cloud Connect, now I need this data backup/replication to work. Thanks
