Granular Backups

Post by George »

Hi Guys,

Just a question for you...

I have a file server and i only want to backup three folders. The folders are the main three shares on the network.

Does Veeam offer granular backups - as in i can select just those three folders to backup and nothing else? I know i can perform a granular restore, just wondering about granular backups...

Thanks

As far as i know: no.

You could exclude all the other vmdks you dont need within your job. So you could just backup the vmdk with the data on it. But i haven't seen any option to select certain folders for a backup.

Hi, to backup individual files, you can use the File Copy job Veeam provides. Thanks!

Ah i see. Never used that before :)

But it's just a copy job so no increments or whatever right?

You are correct. There will be no incrementals.
